The obvious answer is that having one mirror to point people at is 
better than letting them wonder amongst a forest of dozens of mirrors. 
On the other hand, maybe Git users prefer the latter scenario.  A number 
of people have asked for an official Git mirror, though.  If no one 
wants this anymore, then by all means let's forget about it.
