Yes, they were imported from here:

The git history around the initial CVS import is quite
annoying, since there were a series of commits that added
the whole of gdb, then removed it, then re-added it, etc.
I think there are ways in git nowadays to tell (local) git to
see through a range of commits, so effectively
"virtually squash" those deletions as if they never existed,
but I never investigated exactly how to do it.  If someone pulls
that off, I think it'd be great.
