Directions on how to keep a current git. The quick answer:

I pull the git source using:I pull the git source using:

git clone git://git2.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git

and periodically do

cd ~/git.git
git pull
make
make test
sudo make install

That way I keep up to date, and I’m using git to get git, which just feels like the right thing to do. I haven’t yet gone as far as adding a cron entry to do this automatically.

(The first time I did this, of course, I downloaded the git source manually and built and installed it, to solve the obvious chicken-and-egg problem.)
