Bug Description

Within the last weeks the Linux kernel's version control system git advanced to release 1.5.6. A numereous number of bugs was fixed between hardy's release 1.5.4 and the current release 1.5.6, especially regarding HTTP support. Debian's backport from is not built with curl support as far as I remember. It would be a great gift to see the last maintenance release of git before it advances to release 1.6.

I'm confirming this one, it builds and is installable. Version tested:

(source package is git-core, git is a different package)

As previously mentioned, testing of the rdepends is what is blocking this.
