Odd Git Licensing Message on OSX

Today,IOS 7 dropped to the general public. As usually comes with the release, there was an Xcode update. I updated.

 

For some time, I’ve been using the git bundled in Xcode as it makes it simpler to get updates as they come with Xcode. Today, that yielded an amusing message.

I use git via an alias in my .bashrc

alias git='xcrun git'

A simple version check reveals all:

 

git –version

xcode-git-message

Oops… git is apparently subject to Apple’s licenses.
