Git Cached Archiver Module
==========================
A module to check out git repositories and package them into tar.gz files.

Requirements
------------
This module depends on the messagequeue module (https://github.com/silverstripe-labs/silverstripe-messagequeue).

Documentation
-------------
This module is used to generate downloads of Git repositories. Every time a ModulePage or AddOnRelease class is saved,
an onAfterWrite script queues a message in message queue to package up a Git module into a zip file. Generating the zip
file normally takes a few seconds (a bit longer for very large modules).

When the CachedGitArchiver creates a zip file, it also creates a GitInfoCache object that stores information about the archive,
 such as its URL and SHA hash. This info object is used as a quick way of referencing the SHA hash. It is also used by the
 GitArchiveUpdateTask to re-generate the master download of a module every hour.

Git was introduced after the SVN downloads using the Subversion module. Using a message queue became necessary because
generating the git archives on-the-fly when the user requests a page resulted in too many Apache processes.

Errors are logged to:
