Just a question: Why are you "suddenly" tripping over this? That feature has 
been supported in Kate for years already. And to my knowledge you are the 
first one to complain (at least so loudly).

Potentially you have always compiled everything from sources but didn't have 
libgit2 installed? So maybe the easiest way is to just uninstall libgit2 
again? Or at least disable its usage *at compile time* in ktexteditor? No GUI 
needed then :)
