Commit 9b5b5c1 adds the (guix git-download) module, which provides the
‘git-fetch’ download method.  It’s currently used by only one package,

    (name "libwebsockets")
    (version "1.2")
    (source (origin
              ;; The project does not publish tarballs, so we have to take
              ;; things from Git.
              (method git-fetch)
              (uri (git-reference
                    (url "git://")
                    (commit (string-append "v" version
              (file-name (string-append name "-" version))))

    ;; ...

It’s meant to be used only in cases where upstream does not publish
tarballs, as is the case here (the project tags versions in the repo,
just doesn’t upload tarballs.)
