Again: please bottom-post on lists. It's very easy in Gmail: press
Ctrl-A to select all, which expands the quoted text. Trim it to the
part you're responding to, then type underneath. It is how I did this.

And again: this is not the point. We know how Git works. The point is
that there are now multiple different Github repos containing mirrors
of ETH's repo, and none is "official".
