I can not speak for every contributor, but there is a lot more to
contributing to a project than the end result. Many contributors take pride
in their contributions and these days, one's GitHub contributions have
value in the job market. A wholesale removal of the git history by Sugar
Labs does not send a very welcoming message to past or future contributors.
On a more mundane level, the lack of history means as a developer I have no
way of knowing whom to ask for help.
