As James Cameron already wrote, I had to 'yum install git' to be able to 
do the git-clone.
This also pulled in perl for a total of > 15 MB. No problem for me since 
I was at home
with a high speed internet connection.
I was going to suggest to just tar up the modified directories and then 
use a script similar
to what you provided  for the git case in order to make it easier for 
3rd party testers,
but James beat me to it.
