Git is complex software.
One needs an installer of some kind to put Git on a developer
workstation, or to upgrade to a newer version of Git.
Setting up a Git server is non-trivial.  One could use GitHub,
but that introduces another third-party dependency and a
centralized service, which mitigate the key advantage of Git
which is that it is "distributed".  There are various free
alternatives to GitHub, such as GitLab, but those too require
a lot of dependences and a lot of server setup.

<p>
In contrast, Fossil is a single standalone binary which one
installs by placing it to $PATH.  That one binary contains all
the functionality of core Git and also GitHub or GitLab.  It
manages a community server with wiki and bug tracking, provides
packaged downloads for consumers, login managements, and so forth,
