The Fedora git thing is actually *package* git, which doesn't contain
NetworkManager source files, but really just stores the RPM specfile and
associated configuration for the Fedora distro.  So upstream
NetworkManager (which is distro-agnostic) has all the sources, while
downstream Fedora package git has all the Fedora-specific stuff in it.
