With GIT it is easier to use directly the repository.
git doesn't store timestamps, which requires often regeneration of
files for no particular reason. :( cvs is stilly quite silly there
But I'm (atleast) not arguing for or against git, I frankly don't care
as long as emacs works. I was only interested in how git as a tool
replaceses the need for commit messages (ChangeLog); which isn't the
case at all. I use git on a daily basis, but I don't find it easier
to use than say cvs, bzr, svn or anything else.
