I guess that a tarball would be the distro of the project, i.e. what is
while a released project should contain the .git repo, with all the history
in it
so as to let future developers have all the data to start a new development.
In such a case what is not needed are the files since they are also
in the .git repo. I was wandering why there should instead be a need to have
also the files (note that a directory with a .git in it and no other files
is a
project with a pending change in it that is the removal of all files, as
by git status).
