We do have a mechanism for overriding the git sources for things, but os-*-config don't use them at the moment, they either install from packages or pip. I'm not sure what the rationale was for not including a git source for those tools, but I think we should do it, even if it's limited to situations where the procedure for overriding sources is being followed.

(The procedure that should be used is the DIB_REPO* environment variables documented in diskimage-builder/elements/source-repositories/README.md)

So, for now I think you're going to be stuck hacking the elements, unfortunately.
