This is referring to "git the command", not "git the system",
so it should not be changed according to the rule that was
applied when many "git" strings were changed to "Git".

I'd felt that they were referring to 'Git the system', hence the changes.

There are scripts, etc. in the wild that parse this output.

My first pass avoided the 'git --version' response on the basis
that it might be used in the tests or elsewhere, but I didn't
find an occurrence of it's use (in Git), so I thought 'why not'.
However I'm not wedded to it. If the exact phrase 'git version'
is parsed in the wild it then we should let it be.

which is another reason we would not want to change this.

Does the build system use this output somewhere?

The other strings in this patch mention "git commands" which
the user is expected to type, so it might make sense to leave
them as-is as well.
