(ignore me if this has been discussed already) The first sentence looks overly repeticious (it just looks to me as if saying "Git GUI is a Git GUI written in Tcl/Tk"). Saying Git GUI allows you to use the [Git source control management tools](https://git-scm.com/) via a GUI and is written in Tcl/Tk. This includes ... may reduce the repetition somewhat. Also if I were writing this intro, I'd move "writtein in Tcl/Tk" to a lot later or perhaps just drop the phrase from here; what the users can gain from the tool is much more important to the readers of this document than its implementation detail.

It is a good thing to say that it is written in Tcl for two reasons.. The users need to know (1) they need to know Tcl/Tk to hack on it, and (2) they need to install "wish" as a prerequisite to run it. Does the document mention the latter explicitly? If it does not, it probably should. Also it helps to have msgfmt installed when building git-gui. That also should be mentioned.
