Absolute facts:

git is C only. Its SDK is light too (no GNU autotools, meson, cmake, etc).
Namely, it seems the complexity of its dependencies, including those from the
SDK, is under control.

Among open source projects, git is popular.


Personal opinion on related subjects:

I do have my own custom gnu/linux distro: I don't even try to build svn BECAUSE
IS A CLUSTER-F*CK CORPORATE GRADE (sorry for the caps, it had to get out
somehow :P ).

Additionally, I have been fooling around with vulkan: I am even writing a spirv
assembler in order to avoid that pile of degenerated c++ cr*p, llvm grade,
which is the khronos glsl->spirv converter. Once I have _interesting_ stuff
actually _working_... we never know... and git would be more than welcome if
"you know what" happens.
