You could, if you had shell access to the server.

But I suggest something completely different: you already have a 
lilypond.git/ on  Alas, it is quite outdated.

Maybe you want to ask Pasky to change it to a Mirror of

Then everything would get easy: everybody who feels like it just _forks_ 
the project.

And whenever you want to get something from such a fork, you create a 
"remote" (if you haven't done already) with "git remote add -f <nick> 
<url>", or just fetch from it with "git fetch <nick>".

The beauty of Git is that it does not care from where you fetched it.  
Content is king, and Git can easily find the branch points, cherry-pick 
single patches, merge, etc.

So I really strongly suggest not doing everything in one repository (the 
central way, as you were used to with CVS), but go distributed.
