Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Currently, there are 91 [git] questions on SU compared to 3,588 at SO. Are there reasons for keeping this split?

Well, from a wider angle I'd say that many computer (power/super) users would actually benefit a lot by facilitating revision control for their every day document handling(/backup) (see Martin Fowlers Bliki page on Subversion for a particular nifty use case, and more thoughts regarding this).

That said, I've yet to witness this technique being applied properly by a not so technical and especially not so programming oriented group of users (e.g. in a corporate environment). In addition Git will likely be the least appealing/usable DVCS for the non technical users out there, IMO (no preference stated here, just my observations for this particular use case).

Since looking at a few sample questions seems to indicate that most are programming related indeed, you have a point here, but be aware that this would be opening a can of worms, as their are quite some other version control related questions too ;)
