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.
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.
