Easy git on Emacs with emacs-git

I have been using emacs-git for the last few days and and it proved incredible useful. It let's you do interactively most of the basic git operations such as creating, cloning or importing a repository, it inidcates graphically the git status of the current file with a colored LED-like icon at the Emacs bottom status line and it also facilitates adding / removing files to the repo, ignoring files, tagging, merging and conflict resolution.
Emacs-git works only on Emacs (and not on X Emacs) and requires a very recent version of Emacs (I am using it on a nightly build of aquamacs, which is based on Emacs from CVS).
