Tend to agree, although a big liability will be the fact that we're
still not on git ourselves.  So, to be useful that github tree would
to get regular cvs updates incorporated, and then any content would
need to be manually moved over.  The trees would be constantly
slightly out of sync - what happens if somebody commits a fix without
a revbump to git and then the cvs tree refreshes git not showing the
change, and so on?

I guess for proxy-maintained packages we could just consider the
git-tree "official" and do all forward work there without publishing
cvs changes automatically.  Then cvs updates are just manual copies
when things are good in the git tree.  However, the second somebody
comes along with some library package move or other tree-wide change
they're going to make things out of sync unless they know to go update
git.

Seems like overlays are the best candidate for a place to start since
they largely use git already.  Maybe this is just one more reason to
get the main tree onto git as well...
