            Bug ID: 170426
           Summary: [GTK][JHBuild] Fetch libvpx from a release tarball
                    instead of git
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

I don't know what is the issue with the libvpx repository, but when using the JHBUILD_MIRROR feature <https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/166061> it sometimes takes ages to run the fetch operation or it even fails with a network timeout.

And, I see no reason to use the git repository.

Using a release tarball should be better in any case and will lower the disk and network needs required for building WebKitGTK.
