I don't think I have the bits to fiddle with commit hooks on Savannah. However, this problem isn't limited to Savannah; it could happen to any downstream project that uses these files and has similar commit hooks. All things considered I suspect it's better just to trim the trailing white space in the Gnulib copy. Of course the upstream version should be trimmed too but (as we see here) that's not always easy.

I installed the attached patch and did an autoupdate. While I was at it, I configured srclist.txt to strip trailing white space from texinfo.tex too, as I recall that being an issue in the past (don't recall where).
