ehm, that you need git? that you need to use git to get information about changes? that you need a whole new infrastructure of mirrors to get it running (vs the rsync infrastructure)? that you need at minimum 800MiB to be able to look at some history, iso. 286MiB as the rsync tree is now? Besides from that git doesn't even work on all platforms, but I can imagine you don't care about that. -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo on a different level
