This is the canonical version, and I guess in theory I'm still taking
care of it. However, the need that git.el was originally addressing is
now fulfilled by better tools. As such, I feel that it has outlived its
usefulness, and I'm no longer actively developing it.

I'd recommend that anybody still using it switch to Magit, which is
being actively maintained, and IMO superior to git.el in all respects.
