I'm the main author of vc-git.el and git.el, and I'd be happy to sign
the needed paperwork if you want to use them. I think most of the
changes done by other people would be in the tiny change category, or
I can rewrite them if needed.

It's true that vc-git is not very good at the moment, it's a quick
hack I put together because people were requesting it but I don't
really use it myself, so I'd be happy for someone to take over
maintenance. git.el is in better shape, and much more useful IMHO.
