I'm not stating a personal opinion about VC or Magit.  (I don't have
one.)  I'm citing what other people generally say on this list.

When people ask here what they should do to use git with Emacs, the
usual answer posted is "use Magit".  Thus the problem: that the usual
way people recommend to use Emacs with Git is via a package we have
been unable to include in Emacs.
