You misunderstood me. The main problem is not with the Git mailing lists, it is
with the fact that the Perl code that git contains make use of Error.pm, which
is an old, poorly behaving, and deprecated, module that should not be used.
What prevents me from bringing it to the attention of the git developers is my
block from @vger.kernel.org and the fact that git does not have a bug tracker,
but I care less about fixing these issues as long as the problem with Error.pm
is fixed.

I guess I can try. From what I saw, Git's core developers aren't present on
#git on Freenode, and it's mostly a users-to-users support.
