"which svnlite" -> /usr/bin/svnlite
(from /usr/src/usr.bin/svn)

"which git" -> /usr/local/bin/git
(from /usr/ports/devel/git)

After the transition, will FreeBSD base contain the tool for the cloning 
the FreeBSD repository (not one of the mirrors?)

Is there a plan to have 'git' or one of its clones added to the base system?

Surprisingly, I can't seem to find any prominent discussion / debate on 
"git in base" (the tool itself).
