Keeping up with git is not the same as installing a dev version for
production use! People who build and use git are good the same way as
people using dev versions with full awareness of the caveats are good.
But if somebody suggested installing git at work, the same objection
would apply. Even more so than for dev releases. People who build and
use git need to be at least somewhat aware what is going on in
development and be ready to interact with developers up on finding
bugs. A git snapshot from two hours ago may be obsolete...
