Haha, I completely understand.

I did notice since I posted the other day that it's not git-init.el
that's different between us and RPMForge.  The trouble is in the lack
of a vc-git.el script in newer upstream releases.  The RPM Forge
packages don't do anything about this, so I would presume that they
either haven't noticed the change or don't care enough about emacs
support to let it hold up a nice git update (which I can understand).

If there are as many emacs-git users of the RPM Forge packages as
there are of the EPEL packages, I can see how simply dropping that
functionality could easily go unnoticed. :)
