Summary0003496: Update the git package to 1:2.9.3-1
DescriptionIt seems that kali repos have an older version of git than the one currently in the (testing branch) Debian repos:

root@offsec:~/Desktop/metasploit-framework# apt policy git
  Installed: 1:2.8.1-1
  Candidate: 1:2.8.1-1
  Version table:
 *** 1:2.8.1-1 500
        500 kali-rolling/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

root@offsec:~# git --version
git version 2.8.1

Package git

    stretch (testing) (vcs): fast, scalable, distributed revision control system
    1:2.9.3-1: amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips mips64el mipsel powerpc ppc64el s390x

Could this be updated please!

Running the current version produces this output:
root@offsec:~# git status
fatal: bad object HEAD
fatal: 'git status --porcelain' failed in submodule Templates/Git/git

It is unknown if this is reflected do to version or something else.

So, removing the git downloaded and compiled from seems to have solved the bad object HEAD issue.
