[NonGNU ELPA] New package proposal: git-modes

I would like to propose the addition of "git-modes" to NonGNU Elpa.  It
provides three simple major-modes gitattributes-mode, gitconfig-mode and

These modes/libraries used to be (and still are) distributes as three
separate packages on Melpa but I think it would be best to distribute
them as a single package.  I've asked Steve Purcell (Melpa maintainer)
about it and he agrees.  The three existing packages will be replaced
with the "git-modes" packages on Melpa.

A "git-modes.el" library that merely loads the other libraries existed
for a long time already.  Users don't actually have to load that, or
the individual libraries for that matter, because autoloading adds the
appropriate entries to auto-mode-alist.

Adding to GNU ELPA is not an option because one of the main authors
is against assigning copyright to the FSF as a matter of principle.

"git-modes" can be found at https://github.com/magit/git-modes.  You
can git-clone from that URL to avoid non-free javascript.  Note that
I am preparing for the addition to NonGNU ELPA on the "next" branch.
