git usage question

I need to make a minor edit to one of the sources of a package.  I want the 
sources on my machine in a state so that emacs will recognize the files are 
under git control and act accordingly, so I can do my edits and use emacs 
vc-mode stuff to commit, diff, etc.  I tried using fedpkg clone + fedpkg 
sources.  That just gets me the .tar.gz + patches.  I tried fedpkg prep.  
That doesn't seem to work because it unpacks the source under a 
subdirectory.  Any hints?
