  167 +The script has a section containing version numbers of the respective packages.
  168 +Some packages have beside the stable release version number also a variable
  169 +with the suffix _GIT. If that variable is set to either a branch name or a
  170 +revision SHA the script will try to clone the repository and checkout the
  171 +respective branch or SHA instead of downloading the stable version.
  172 +
  173 +If you provide a GIT branch name the script will contact the GIT server and
  174 +query the associated SHA. If this SHA is already present in the sources
  175 +directory it will not attempt to reclone the repository.
