Maybe I missed something but I'm only aware of one project on sourceware
making the move to git and that's binutils/gdb.  I'm planning on moving
Cygwin too eventually but it has, so far, required individual effort
from someone in the project to perform the work.

I'm sure that Tom will be willing to do some handholding but he probably
doesn't want to be "Mr. Git" for every project on sourceware.
