I will not do that.
If you want my help to improve *your* tree, you have to start by
answering the *one* question I've repeatedly asked you to clarify.
In fact if you go for this I would consider it an act of sabotage
against these new projects.
If you hadn't made me waste all this time chasing a non-attainable goal,
these projects would already be packaged by distributions, instead of
hidden in some corner of /usr/share.
Distributions wouldn't even be aware of the move, and it might take bug
reports to make them realize that. There will be already enough damage
to the reputation of these tools with Git v2.0 shipping them broken.
