I'm not sure having perl/Git/ would be a good idea: this would be really a mediawiki thing more than a Git thing, so
the Git main tree probably want to stay away from it and keep it in

But you should be able to use contrib/mw-to-git/perl/ or
something like that and chain to ../../perl/Makefile in

Also, for now, git-remote-mediawiki works only after you run "make
install" in Git's toplevel. I think that's ok, but it would be weird to
be able to use/test git-remote-mediawiki only after doing a "make
install" to deploy the new mediawiki Perl module.
