I think it would benefit the GNU Emacs project, the Emacs developers and
maintainers, and the Emacs community as a whole if there was an official
read-only Git mirror of the Emacs repository that was updated with every
Bazaar push.  Not polling, but actually triggered by a push.  And this
sync should be recognized as an important convenience to the Emacs
community, not just an afterthought.  It would not imply an endorsement
of Git over Bazaar, and this can be made explicit in web pages and FSF

We live in an era where DVCS has become a commodity, so this would let
us treat it as such and concentrate on hacking.
