There isn't a git mirror of the full src tree on sourceware.

I don't know what anybody else is doing, but I use git for development
of my main project (gdb) and treat CVS as a write-only repository. On
the rare occasions I need to work on binutils, I either use binutils.git
or just the appropriate CVS module.

Nope, see the extensive discussions about this in the archives.
