libgit2-glib is actually a subproject of and maintained as a component of gitg.  It only exists because libgit2 doesn't
provide the introspection data required by gitg which is written in vala.

libgit2 and libgit2-glib updated to version 0.24.0 in r146698 after a quick response
from the gitg developers.

Sorry you had to do this.  Hopefully, we can coordinate better in the future.
