Hi Gary,

I've added both the repositories http://repository.maemo.org/extras and http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel, but searching for git in them didn't give results. Googling 'site:repository.maemo.org git-core' gave me http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/pool/diablo/free/g/git-core/ as the first hit, containing git-core_1.5.6.3-1.1maemo0_armel.deb, and http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/dists/diablo/install/ as the second, containing git-core.install. When I open the .install one on my N900, the application manager is opened, and it says "Unable to download 'git-core'. Application package not found." Can you help me out? Thanks in advance.
