I would say no if:

1.  It is not maintained by CentOS

2.  It was mistakenly released into the stream only once upstream, and
then removed.

3.  It was removed by CentOS.

Since all of those are true, I would say we do not need to import it.

It does not hurt anything to have it in git either, but I don't think it
is required though.
