Just to clarify, as yum install git is about the first thing I do (closely followed by yum install vim and pylint) on a fresh XO install I remembered to take a note of the install size – for the current olpc candidate 882 build, yum reports git install size as 11Mb (on XO-1.75) and 12Mb on an XO-1. It just pulls in 3 packages, git, perl-Error, and perl-Git.
