They are hosted by Cactus, but are obviously not requiring LGPL.
We do not require git to be present where you compile. You require it
only where you check things out. You then use rsync/simfactory to copy
your tree wherever you want it.

You would be surprised. :) But then, maybe not.

We agreed to download the tarball, only if needed, at runtime. This
should work reasonably well using either wget or curl on essentially all
systems. Whether these are then stored verbatim, in svn or git is a
separate issue, and does not matter here I think. We don't have the
machinery in place to do this anyway right now, so I suggest to not mix
this with the general svn->git transition, and leave the
ExternalLibraries where they are, for now - or make sure we get the
scripts in place that would handle the downloading ect. first.
