Might be, yes.  It certainly won't do any harm, so...

These days I'm actively working (REALLY!) on converting the old Hurd wiki
to ikiwiki (see the announcements on the web-hurd mailing list from some
months ago) and there I decided to use the dvcs git as the rcs backend.

After that endeavor of conversion is over and proves to be working well,
as a next step I intend to publish a git mirror of the Hurd source
repository.  If that also works out well and there is no protest from the
other Hurd maintainers then that git repository may eventually be
declared the official repository and the cvs one will become a read-only
mirror.  That's the plan.

Thanks.  Maybe that already fits some peoples' needs?
