There was never any agreement on who the "master" was for toplevel
sources - no repo was willing to give up control to the other, so no
automatic mirroring was ever done, unlike the libiberty/include
mirror, where src agreed to let gcc be the master.
Also, for the record, I do not wish to, nor do I intend to, provide
any automated merging services for git repos. I don't like git and
I'd rather not use it if I don't have to.
