I've checked git log of my layers and from last 3 cases where I was
replacing github archive with git SRC_URI it was .tar.gz in two cases and
.zip in one (and they were really failing to fetch because checksums

They might maintain that they don't regenerate them anymore, but if you have
older recipe with checksums which were valid 2 years ago you can still
be surprised by new checksums (I was 3 times in last year by github.com,
last month from few more cases which were still using googlecode.com and
direct release URL stopped working).

Unfortunately this always happens close (or worse shortly after) our
internal release when we switch to different premirror directory and
recipes start failing to fetch.
