The spirit does go well beyond the letter.

Ideally, the 'git repositories' should be what everyone gets, rather
than a source code snapshot that has no source change history.

A couple of years ago I sent a question to FSF about meeting source code
requirements for GPLG programs. Specifically, I asked if substituting
the entire current code repository was acceptable, rather than a tarball
of the specific code that was (supposedly) used. Their response was that
the repository was acceptable. They also suggested that a ReadMe file
that contained the instructions on pulling the code that the program
used be included on the DVD.
