Right now, the gnulib repository is mastered in CVS but mirrored by git (I

Earlier this week, I reported a problem when two case-insensitive files
were created, which is a no-no for checkouts on Mac HFS+ or Windows-based
platforms [1].  The problem was quickly corrected in CVS (note that
_Exit.texi now lives in the attic [2]).  But somehow the git repository
still thinks that _Exit.texi belongs to the current tree [3], ...

cvs-to-git conversion seem to be buggy in this respect

What needs to happen to get rid of the _Exit.texi listing in the git
repository, so that case insensitive file systems can clone the gnulib.git

git update-index --force-remove _Exit.texi
git commit -m 'Really removed _Exit.texi'
