Although businesses use git I do not consider it a valid source control system for any beyond the trivial enterprise.

The problem is that labels can only be applied to the repo.
A repo works fine for open source. For example junit/nunit where there is only one deliverable.

Business enterprises often consist of multiple products even when presented as a single visible product/service. And businesses often end up using 'libraries' which are shared.

Naturally a business could put a library into its own repo but that is often (always?) more work than anyone wants to do because then it requires handling that library as an independent deliverable. Which they don't want to do.

That is not a problem with other source control systems because a label can be applied to part of the source control tree. Thus one can pseudo manage that library without formally managing it. Which is about all one can get most developers to do.

But you can't do that with git.
