Bug Description

The apt-get command installs git-core. Quote from the package description:

"This is a transitional dummy package. The 'git-core' package has been renamed to 'git', which has been installed automatically. This git-core package is now obsolete, and can safely be removed from the system if no other package depends on it."

The command should be changed to install the git package instead.
