Looks highly un-efficient to me for all these small packages [...]

A slap in the faces of all maintainers of small packages. Thanks.

So lets rather make it easier to use instead of circumventing it.

Feel free to discuss that with git / gitorious authors.

Sorry, but this is is no way a git/gitorious specific problem.

YaST for example is still in SVN and we also have to do several steps until
can do an "osc commit".

Just one quick idea: We could create a OBS plugi n that automatically pushes
the changes to the files of a package (not every package, only marked ones)
into an auto-generated git repo $somewhere. Then you can continue working
before and the current code is in a git repo outside on a non-OBS server.

And how would that help on merge stuff back ?

It would just overwrite stuff which comes via a different route ?

Can you name a single advantage when using git for such a single file project ?
