   :) Well, I asked about it just recently, and the maintainer's main
   reason is that it's not acceptable to have a package that requires
   an internet connection to be useful. I agree that it's not a good
   way to use gnulib, which is why I'm switching to using it from git.

You do not need a internet connection to compile a project that uses
gnulib, the project will include whatever parts of gnulib it uses.
