I am, yes. I'm using it on Ubuntu with git.
By default it commits all uncommitted changes when you install something
with apt, then commits that package's files. On my server, I disabled
this, so that if I have uncommitted files, apt actually fails with an
error that indicates the uncommitted files. I can then manually commit
them with proper comments. I'm assuming the rpm/yum support is on par
