This is just nuts considering I just want to git clone/pull, fix something and
git push it back.

Can this package be split up into subpackages ?
gitk could live in its own package, and maybe a git-interop package for all the
conversion scripts that most people never need.
Comment 1 Chris Wright 2006-09-27 18:07:54 EDT
It is split up.  On most machines I only ever install git-core and gitk.
The original package was called git-core, so if you just kept updating
you would never get anything but the core git (clone/pull/push...).  The
actual git package is just an umbrella package with dependencies to pull
in all the crud people might want.
