One of our servers is running an old version of git,,

which was installed from source. I'd like to upgrade that in

order to get support in git-shell for the git-shell-commands


1. The git book says that after git has been installed from

source, it can be updated via:

    $ git clone git://

Will that work, starting from such an old version? If not,

how would you recommend upgrading to, say, 1.9.0?

2. Will our old git repositories work with the updated git?

Will we have to do any sort of migration on the 1.6.x repos

to make them compatible with 1.9?
