If I understood correctly the ryppl project has several aims:

- migration to git
- migration to cmake
- modularization, together with some form of package management

(the latter is perhaps the real aim, while the former two are just
means to an end)

So my impression is that Philippe was trying to cover only about a
third of what the ryppl folks have been working on. Which of course
may still mean that some form of redundancy is going on.

Either way, I think it has been argued elsewhere that isolating the
migration to git from the other steps would be a good idea.
