We plan to add git support in version 3.2, which also rewrites how
the revision control integration is done.  I don't yet know when that
will be released, however.

It may not be that hard to copy scripts/svn.py in your Wing install
and get something working by working through it.  The changes needed
are essentially in the command lines of the invoked commands and
in the _read_entries_file code, which would have to be replaced
with something that can get the necessary status info from git.

However, it may just be easier to wait too... ;-)
