I finally ran into a firewall issue in that I could not gain access to a git repository that was only available using the git protocol.

Works great!

If you have git and plucker installed, then you can easily create a Plucker version of the git documentation for you Palm.

    plucker-build --title="git" --doc-name="git" --doc-file="git" --stayonhost="" --maxdepth=10 file:///usr/share/doc/git-core-x.y.z/git.html

For the lazy among us, here is git.pdb.

Update 2009-10-11: Removed git.pdb because git documentation has been updated significantly since I created this plucker document. Also, I no longer use a Palm device so plucker is not an application I use anymore.
