Therefore I am looking to upload git 1: to unstable.
Gerrit seems to be on vacation, but I am guessing he would be happy
with the changes.

The package builds git, gitk, git-gui, gitweb, git-daemon-run, git-doc,
and git-email binary packages, plus a git-core transitional package,
a runit script in git-daemon-run, various packages for interaction
with other version control systems, and the git-all metapackage.

- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/g/git/git_1.7.2.3-2.1.dsc
- git clone -b for-squeeze git://repo.or.cz/debian-git/jrn.git

I would be happy if you find a chance to look it over.
