This is used in Guix as part of our update mechanism.

Specifically, the command `guix pull` [0] downloads that snapshot to
accomplish something that you can consider analogous to `apt-get update`
on dpkg / apt systems.

We plan for `guix pull` to evolve to use Git directly rather than
downloading a tarball, but we aren't there yet.
