Not sure how they would do that.

But at any rate I have never used VS source control. Not for git and not for other source control types either. I find inserting too many tools into one UI does nothing but lead to confusion and potential mistakes. For example something I have seen (not just in VS) is the idea of an 'auto commit' - I consider that just a mistake waiting to happen.

For git I use the command line and TortoiseGit.

Can't remember which one, but one of the big ones has their own in house built source control system.
