Reported to DSpace Tech by Devaux Cédric
IRC Discusson on this subject:
‹tdonohue› First up in that list is not actually a ticket, but I saw this report that DSpace 6 may require Git to actually build? https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/dspace-tech/ePevCFj8Ofw

[12:03:17] ‹tdonohue› That seems very odd to me, and no one responded on the lists...It'd be nice to get someone to investigate that
[12:05:04] ‹tdonohue› Anyone have time to look into whether DSpace 6 requires Git? It really shouldn't...so if it is doing so, we need to log a bug and resolve in 6.1
[12:07:37] ‹tdonohue› no volunteers for Git issues...ok, well, it sounds like this might at least need a ticket to track it.
[12:07:59] ‹terry-b› I will create a ticket
[12:08:10] ‹mhwood› Actually I just took a quick look, and buildnumber-maven-plugin will indeed call the SCM – git in our case.
[12:08:34] ‹tdonohue› thanks terry-b. If you could respond to the thread, that'd be great too...even if just to say: we created a ticket for this and are investigating
[12:09:05] ‹hpottinger› +1 we need a ticket for that for sure
[12:09:24] ‹tdonohue› mhwood: that sounds like a bug then, right? Is there a way to get it to not call SCM? Is this plugin for figuring out the version of DSpace they are running?
[12:09:48] ‹mhwood› Dunno what we are doing with the build number.
