As you probably know, the cvs gnulib repository is now being mirrored
to the git one pretty regularly (sync'd every 30 minutes).
Maybe that is enough for you?

Browse it:


Check out a copy (my local copy is 17MB):

    git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/gnulib

As for converting gnulib development to git, I still have some work to do:

I have to adapt the git hook I'm currently using for coreutils
(to sync the read-only CVS repository from the master git repo
with each "push") so that it works even for merges.
