Using 'git' name legally ok?

0 votes

I realize this is probably a strange question, but my employer wants to make sure we can freely use the 'git' name in our documentation and even our internal DNS structure without risk of legal problems. I'm not sure who to contact for this "officially" as there isn't an email address on the project page, other then the mailing list. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just finished building and installing git on my Android device. After testing, I'd like to build it in such a way that I can tarball and upload/send it.

Are there any make targets that would allow me to do that or do I need to rebuild with the NO_CROSS_DIRECTORY_HARDLINKS option and install to a stage /usr/git or /usr/local/git?
