That's irrelevant.  My proposal is to push this responsibility on the
people who maintain the mirror.

Better would be to add it to the Git mirror without adding it to
Emacs's CVS.  For you it wouldn't make any difference, except that you
might even have a cleaner Git because additionally to adding
.gitignore files, the mirror could remove the .cvsignore files, rename
INSTALL.CVS to INSTALL.GIT, you name it.
