The conflict with the existing GIT package is painful for distributions.
Packagers try hard to avoid any file conflicts between packages, since it
means that both packages cannot be used at the same time, and it turns out
in discussion on the Debian mailing lists that people actually do use GIT.

Managing the conflict between two programs that do completely different
things and are named the same thing is really annoying.
