That's sadly a bigger problem. The RPMForge Repo has packages
with the same name as RHEL5 standard. If you add the repo and
issue an "yum update", then yum fetches all newer versions vom
RPMforge and updates the RHEL packages. That's major PITA since
RHEL support will go like "Oh, you have core libraries from
a third party source - go figure out the problem yourself."

Sadly a no-go for many of us.

I'd rather download the git rpms and install them manually.
