I saw your commit and thought the exact same thing.
But I don't understand why you need to do that: .git is already skipped
in update-archive.sh:

rsync -av --delete \
      --exclude=ChangeLog \
      --exclude=.git \
      --exclude='*.elc' \
      --exclude='*~' \
      --exclude='*-autoloads.el' \
      ../elpa/packages ./

So I wonder: are you using update-archive.sh, or what are you using?
