Oh goodness!  You did indeed!  Talking about git could be considered a bit 
Perlish, since the Perl 5 source is moving to git as its source-control 
system.  You could make it especially Perlish if you added git-fu on how to 
run Perl::Critic or something similar before code gets committed.

You immediately qualify on the 5-minute version because if we're doing 
lightning talks, then that's a lightning talk.  ;)

I'd personally love to see git as a longer talk (unless anyone complains), 
so I'd propose the git talk as the "feature talk" for the evening, with 
lightning talks either before or after.
