In a recent update of RhodeCode, it became dependent on the installed version of the git being at least 1.7.4. However, not all distros are up to even that. Debian Squeeze is on git 126.96.36.199.
To be able to work around this, it would be good to have the option to explicitly indicate the git executable RhodeCode should use. If none is specified, it would use the default system git, if a full path to the git executable was used (say '/opt/git/bin/git'), it could use that instead.
