Using Git means that next to every user will download the whole
history of changes with logs for every file in the tree, which
is an overkill for web pages where typical use cases are fixing
a typo on a page, uploading a new page or at most making a set
of changes on multiple pages.

Our Git server already suffers overloading; if Git is used for web
pages, the situation will yet deteriorate.

Sure; it would save Savannah Git server from the additional load,
though the resources still would be wasted when downloading unneeded
data from CVS.
