I don't think that was intended to dismiss git entirely, but only
question what the point of this particular git repo/branch is for:
http://git.postgresql.org/?p=~davidfetter/postgresql/.git;a=shortlog;h=with_recursive

Is it just to provide an alternative way to fetch the patch? I would
have thought that anybody who can compile PostgreSQL from source can
apply a patch (if the patch available and applies cleanly).

The with_recursive branch doesn't seem to provide any of the nice
goodies that git could provide (i.e. patch history, merge corresponding
to various versions so you can easily see what changed, etc)
