Git cannot be used with HTTP or HTTPS and SSO

Git provides the http.delegation configuration variable, which corresponds to the cURL --delegation parameter, for use when delegation of Kerberos tickets is required. However, Git included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 contains irrelevant checks of the version of the libcurl library while required fixes are provided by a different version of libcurl on RHEL 6 systems. As a consqeuence, using Git with Single Sign-On on HTTP or HTTPS connections fails. To work around this problem, use the Git version provided by the rh-git29 Software Collection from Red Hat Software Collections. (BZ#1430723)
