Apologies, but I couldn't understand what this commit is supposed to
fix. From your description above I understand you're fixing packages
whose method is inferred (i.e. not explicitly set). But here you list
packages which explicitly set it.

Which one are you fixing exactly? Can you provide an example package
that your patch fixes?

BTW I couldn't find in Buildroot any package whose method is an SCM
other than git and is not explicitly set.
