I now have a conversion of gcc_release to use git.  Once the repository 
conversion is done I'll test it for snapshot creation (which can be done 
while the converted repository is still read-only), and commit (to master 
and GCC 9 and 8 branches) once we open up the converted repository for new 
commits.  It's likely however that there will be bugs in the parts of the 
code that are only used for releases but not snapshots, which will only 
show up when the first releases are built from git.
