It's not a of code: gitconfig-mode: 137, gitignore-mode: 61,
gitattributes-mode 232 lines, all including headers.  IMO it
would make sense to re-implement them.

gitignore-mode is completely trivial, basically just font-lock keywords.
gitconfig-mode has more font-lock keywords plus some indentation code,
  which I personally find more annoying than helpful.
gitattributes-mode is more complex, also including support for eldoc and
  some navigation commands.  The good news is that in this case we might
  actually be able to get all the required copyright assignments.
