Nowadays, I would not consider doing nontrivial development on Emacs without having a Git repository available. (This does not require an Internet connection, just a copy of the repository; I commonly work this way.) These days, serious hacking without the repository would be like hacking without the ChangeLog files would have been in the old days. It'd be like hacking with one arm tied behind one's back, and it's not something that we need to cater to.
