It seems that when the fetcher is fetching from the shrinkwrap, the SRCREV variable has been deleted but it still ends up fetching from the git source resulting in an error because SRCREV is undefined.

I think your patch is right. The Fetch class defaults to use SRC_URI
for legacy reasons based on how things were abstracted and extended, it
made sense at the time. I'm not sure if we still need it or not now.

If you send the above patch as a proper patch we can test it and likely
