GIT, as in the base git package, works fine on FreeBSD too at least, I
think Solaris is not entirely supported though, and other operating
systems might not work as it is. This was one of the reasons why for
xine we preferred Mercurial (available almost everywhere Python works).

Cogito on the other hand last time I looked used some GNUisms in the
scripts, so didn't work at 100% on non-GNU systems. Unfortunately,
Cogito *is* a time saver most of the times, and missing it is a big
annoying, at least to me.
