Re: Let dak commit all source packages to Git

I do not think that is a good idea:

You would end with two repositories for packages maintained in Git.

It has the same problems with non-free files in the history as 3.0
(git).  Actually worse as the maintainer cannot remove parts of the
history in a later upload.

It duplicates large amounts of data already available elsewhere. And all
repositories would have to live on ftp-master so that dak could commit
to them.

I would also expect Git repositories for packages including binary data
like images, videos or audio to get very large.

I am also not sure why dak should do this. It can be done somewhere
else, just like snapshot.d.o.
