It isn't "free" (it is the non non-commercial variant, and to be
free-as-in-freedom it would need to allow copying for commercial use)
but I was not suggesting this for incorporation into software (which
would not be possible), only that it is a useful reference for people
learning Git. The project has a lot of people who want to learn Git
in a hurry, and it isn't a bad book for that purpose.

BTW, it is more of a textbook than a manual. The Git manuals that
come with Git itself are of course fully free, but they are not always
the easiest introduction.
