developer tools should support git
(I could have sworn this was already filed, but can't find it)
Several of us (Me, Joshua, Joyent, Delphix, others...) are using git rather than Hg, and letting hg-git figure out the mess. It'd be great to have direct support for git in our tools.
A while ago, I took some initial work by Cyril Plisko and tidied/changed/added to it, and stuck it on github here: https://github.com/richlowe/illumos-gate/compare/git-tools
It'd be useful for all of us git-using folks to get this integrated.
To the best of my knowledge right now this is being used by, at least, myself, Joshua and the Joyent folks.
It requires a more recent git than the unusuable ancient one shipped by OI. This is unavoidable.

There is a perfectly usable one available in the OI SFE repository, though, which is the one I'm using. To get it:
pkg set-publisher -p http://pkg.openindiana.org/sfe pkg uninstall pkg:/developer/versioning/git pkg install pkg:/sfe.openindiana.org/developer/versioning/git
