"Centralizing" multiple repositories into "one"
Hi (visiting this forum again after being spammed on the address that I reserved for it).
I now have more experience with GIT. While I have not found any tool doing it entirely transparently, but there are systems that have options to set up synchronisation between the repositories that are hosted under your own control and the remote uncontrolled ones.
As it's not automated, you need to have the discipline to use only your own copies and in case you need a new foreign repository set up a copy thereof and keep it synchronised.
There is some room to automate this as it is possible to detect that a foreign repository is cloned or referred to in some way, and then setup the managed clone more transparently.
It is likely more easy to keep at least archived copies of used repositories that would not be referred to in the projects themselves but that could serve as a fallback copy in case the original disappears - and some do disappear!
