If you want, you can rebuild the srpm I've been using:

    http://tmz.fedorapeople.org/tmp/git-1.6.3.1-1.fc10.src.rpm

That should rebuild in mock for EL-4 up through rawhide.  Do keep in
mind that it's not an official package and that you'd have to take
some manual steps to update to an official 1.6.3.1-1 package for
Fedora, if we release one.  (Chances are a newer git version will be
out before it matters, but it's something to think about.)

I've held off updating rawhide/F-11 as a 1.6.3.2 is possible before
(or soon after) F-11 is released and I've been debating whether we
should bother pushing a 1.6.2.5 update to F-11 and then a 1.6.3.x
sometime after the 1.6.3.x series has had a little time in rawhide.

Well, that and I've just not had as much time to do packaging the past
few weeks. :)
