I absolutely see your point, and I agree that doing this manually is out
of the question. But I am wondering if it would be possible to automate
this process, i.e. using git post server side hooks? I must admit that I
don't have any experience with this, but it sounds about the thing one
could use to automatically tangle the file.

But as I am not the one who has to maintain it, it is easy for me to
suggest it.
