Well, all mails so far gave you this info ?

The only thing what is not clear from your question is whether this script will also update
sources, or whether the sources are cloned only once.

If you do an update of an existing directory, instead of

git clone http://theurl/ thesourcedirectory

you must do

cd thesourcedirectory
git pull
cd ..

This will reduce the download size considerably.
