Those instructions are from the last conversion, but fortunately they
aren't too wrong.

Yes, you need a couple of local modifications. Change "packages.git" to
"packages" in sync-all, and in the file packages, change the repo name
for "ghc" to "ghc.git".

That was the previous experiment where I converted all the repos to git.
The current plan is to convert ghc only first of all, and convert the
rest shortly afterwards.

I'll push something shortly to get this working again.
