Don't require git for Fabric-based deployment (Enhancement #8721)
We should be able to unpack ourselves and retrieve our dependencies without calling git.
Me (bramwelt) and Chance already discussed this at length. Pip provides a
-e option for installing repos as packages. (Well, its sorta a hack, but works). Currently VNCAuthProxy is the only dependency left for not needing git, as object-log and object-permission are as of 0.10 correctly installed through pip. VNCAuthProxy though is already installed in this manner, though in a roundabout way.
This would also allow the removal of
GIT_DEPENDENCIES in the fabfile.
