Description

(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
