9+
10+* No support for creating annotated tags. pad.lv/1758185
11+* No support for gitattributes and the features that depend on it (lfs, eol, etc). pad.lv/1802797
12+* Limited support for submodules. pad.lv/402814
13+* No rename/copy inference. pad.lv/1760740
14+* No support for creating shallow branches (pad.lv/1760151)
15+* No good way to refer to git remotes from the command-line (pad.lv/1702283)
16+* No mailmap support (pad.lv/544031)
17+
18+Functionality similar to git that's missing:
