I'd be surprised if most people don't already have Git on their system,

it's possible to have CGit running in a container that can see the
repositories but doesn't have git available.

There's enough code to work through and understand (including quite a
lot that isn't used in our scenario) that it's outside the scope of my
CGit budget at the moment.
