Many cross-platform developers tend to have source files on some kind of
file server. At least I do. I wouldn't mind not having the badges, but
being able to invoke git commands without clicking through a menu would
be useful. Do I need to add my own keyboard shortcuts or will the cmd-Y
one learn that at some point in the near future?

On a related note, it would probably be helpful if the cmd-Y list gave
some indication why it doesn't work out of the box. Something like
“you're not on a local disc, SCM support is limited” or whatever; I
honestly wouldn't have guessed what the problem could be.
