I got the "origin does not appear to be a git repository" error.
I solved the issue changing the following line:
[code]cd $_gitname && git pull origin[/code]
[code]git clone git:// $_gitname
cd $_gitname && git fetch origin[/code]
Hope it helps

Just a remark here, this package downloads the whole fgdata repo wich is huge, 5+ Gb.
Then it clones it again wich ads another 5+Gb.
Then it builds a tar.xz wich ads another 2+Gb.
Maybe its better if you clone the repo directly somewhere in your home dir and point fgfs to it.
If you realy whant to package it then you better remove the .git dir in fgdata, something like:

msg "Starting build..."

cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"

find . -path ./.git -prune -o \( \! -name .*ignore -print0 \) | cpio -pmd0 $pkgdir/usr/share/FlightGear/data/

chown root.users $pkgdir/usr/share/FlightGear/data
