It seems like you’re trying to persuade the CCL team to switch to git, and to adopt a distribution strategy that you would prefer. That new strategy appears to involve some new tools and practices.

If you want your proposal to be as persuasive as possible, then you might consider including working and tested versions of the new tools and practices that you propose. If instead you propose that somebody else should do all of that work because you believe you would like the result, then the proposal is less persuasive.
