That way everyone... git repo maintainers, devels, mirrors, users...
can all verify the git repo via that signature. Of course the sig key material needs to be handled in a sanitary way, but still, it's the idea that matters. And git, not svn, would need to be the canonical repo committers commit
to, etc.

This already happens. Clone the Tor repository, and you'll find a signed tag named tor-

Use "git tag -v tor-" to check for yourself.
