AFAKI, from all my OS X using coworkers, Homebrew's the way that modern
Mac developers install Git. Mac Ports may still be around, but I was
sure it was losing against its competitor, Homebrew. Not so sure if the
Mac installer autoupdates. The exception to all this is those GUI users
who have a bundled Git library (libgit2, jgit), or the git-core, as part
of whatever GUI tool they prefer.
