I was extremely surprised to learn that including a full clone of the git repository is actually a feature when building from a trusted SCM rather than an archive.
My suggestion would be to scrub the clone from the source zip. May I proceed with doing so?

This is a known problem and it's a consequence of how brew builds are done. I've already talked about this with Mike Bonnet and it's not a simple thing to change. However the src components produced by brew are not the ones that we attach for each JON release to the CSP so this is really a non-issue. As described, here in step 11, we already have a script that generates the matching src components from the relevant JON tags used, usually 27MB in size:

Obtained processed sources zip and moved forward with publishing it rather than the sources zip from MEAD.
