It would be good to document the limitations when working with git repositories in Breezy.

 * No support for gitattributes and the features that depend on it (lfs, eol, etc).
 * Limited support for submodules.
 * No rename/copy inference.
 * No support for creating shallow branches (
 * No good way to refer to git remotes from the command-line (
