url-fetch requires less bandwidth, and does not depend on 'git'.

Though the most important distinction is that uploaded releases
sometimes contain pre-processed sources (e.g. documentation) that need
additional dependencies or scripts when building from the raw repository
(this is why you often need to add autoconf, libtool & friends as inputs
when building Autotools projects from git).

I don't know whether there is a difference between the uploaded fmt
zipball and the git repository.
