Judging from [1], I would say there's no one on this list who knows
what the hell Siebel is let alone how to integrate it with Git.

[2] suggests that Oracle might be using that crazy "Microsoft SCC API"
for Siebel as well (the thread talks about RoboHelp), but you did not
tell us, and I, for one, do not know if this true of not.

All the same, simply put, Git works with text files.  If what Siebel
deals with is representable as a set of text files (true plain text,
XML or whatever), and their contents is reasonably stable [*] between
adjacent edits (?) or re-exports (?) from Siebel, then you possibly
could use Git with Siebel.

[*] This means that if I do a small change in a Siebel uh... "project"
    (I dunno if it has projects -- substitute whatever fits best)
    and save/export the state, the change in the set of files this thing
    generates should be small and well localized, otherwise the whole
    idea of using Git on such a set of files is futile.
