If the repository has been cloned, are there any operations that
require the remote? We could leave the old mirror there to be polled
for updates- which it will never have- but I was under the impression
that a cloned git repo was independent. Nobody should clone the old
mirror if they're starting anew, so I'd rather just delete it than
confuse people who reasonably expect "hadoop.git" to contain a current
version, pull down something that appears to contain core, mapred, and
hdfs, and then need to migrate their work to the active repositories.
