Deprecate @theia/git extension


As discussed in several dev calls, we would like to deprecate the @theia/git extension. It has a functional overlap with the VS Code built-in Git extension and it does not make sense to maintain our own Git extension anymore. This will reduce maintenance efforts.
If you are an active user of the Theia Git extension, we recommend you to evaluate switching to the VS Code built-in. If you see any issues with the switch, please raise them here:

best regards,


Hi, we’re using the “@theia/git” extension for our project, we’ll try using the VS Code built-in Git extension, we’ll let you know if we find any issues or challenges doing so.
