putting all of that in one git repo.
Another viewpoint is to consider the file system layout for the global
projects. Git manages a single directory and its sub-folders and their
files. One can ignore sub folders, or one can make sub-folders into
independent git repositories (e.g. say for a library component). The
latter method is typically a sub-module.
The main point is that the layout choice is more social,
administrative or management dependent.
Because all git repositories have the same top level, detectable
arrangement (look up $GIT_DIR) it is possible to search pragmatically
for all the repos and maintain control, certainly on the main server.
However, do remember that Git is DISTRIBUTED, which means that the
local user has local control (and its their problem;-), so they can
place the Git repos in places for their convenience, even if they have
to set their 'remote' addresses to the URLs you give them (i.e. you
can make it easy for yourself, they make it easy for themselves,
happiness all round..)

There is no limitation on what kind or subject of content that can be
given git repository.
If they are 120 different programs, I'd seriously consider making
separate repos, unless some of the programs were closely coupled to make
several of them part of a common (mashup?) application.
