I suppose it would be, but you don't need the entire git history right? 
Just the current files? I'm pretty sure our head revision is ok and
doesn't contain much sensitive.

Well, for complex our httpd module has often been messy seeming to me. 
The glusterfs one I added recently might be middling complex. It
doesn't have much in it, but it uses templates and some other things. 
Something like askbot would be a simple one I think.
