My understanding has always been that we would maintain the vendor
history in our tree, as we do today in the existing svn2git conversion
(i.e. https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd) with elftoolchain. This is
the configuration that I have prototyped and experimented with.

This does not and has never implied that we'd have *all* of the
upstream history of every piece of contrib software that we use, just
that in the history for a contrib component we have our versions
(i.e., what's in contrib/ today) as well as the snapshots
corresponding to upstream revisions (i.e., vendor/).
