Host git repositories on HBase: https://github.com/trendmicro/jgit-hbase
Thanks to Shawn Pierce for jgit.storage.dht (http://egit.eclipse.org/r/#change,2295)!
Only thing I'd advise is wait for the commit message on org.apache.hadoop.hbase.jgit to change from "Initial implementation" to something else. Should happen in a day or so. I refactored on patch 2 but won't get to trying out hosting a repo until tonight maybe.
While my main interest here is a live continuous HBase application test for finding problems and regressions, I'm sure you can imagine possibilities for meaningful table map-reduce processing over Git structures, where Git can be used for constructing history graphs over arbitrary change sets of anything.
Problems worthy of attack prove their worth by hitting back.
