Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-01-30 14:14:23 UTC
We should consider replacing ngit with libgit2, because libgit2 appears to be more actively maintained than jgit.

Comment 1 Marius Ungureanu 2013-07-15 09:22:35 UTC
This will have to be postponed as libgit2 does not yet support Rebasing.
Comment 2 Marius Ungureanu 2013-11-21 00:32:19 UTC
Still postponed.
Comment 3 Tajinder Singh 2014-07-07 10:25:37 UTC

Comment 4 Marius Ungureanu 2014-07-07 10:31:03 UTC
The libgit2 branch features the port itself. There is nothing to verify here.
