Disable shallow clones in the build-rpm CI job

Laurent Petre requested to merge bugfix/gitlab-ci-rpm-version into develop


Title says it all; here is the commit message for more detailed explanations.

Since tito uses 'git describe' to compute the RPM version, Git shallow
clones cannot be used. Indeed it can lead to inconsistent results if the
clone depth is not large enough.

Setting the Git clone depth to 1, except for the build-rpm job that
performs a full clone.
