The 'git' Debian package in squeeze


thanks to Ian Beckwith, the GNU Interactive Tools package 'git' has been
renamed to 'gnuit' in lenny.  In lenny 'git' is a transitional package
that depends on gnuit, in squeeze and sid there's no 'git' package

I'm about to provide a new git binary package from the git-core (the
distributed revision control system) source, so that 'apt-get install
git' installs the git content tracker in squeeze.  For people upgrading
from lenny with git (from gnuit) installed, this means the new git (from
git-core) package will be installed even if git-core wasn't installed
before.  I don't think it's that bad, should it be documented in
NEWS.Debian in the new git package nevertheless?

Thanks, Gerrit.
