To use git from Vim, 5 packages are available:

- git-vim (included with Vim 7.1 and later). Provides ftplugin and syntax files for editing various git files (e.g. commit messages).
- VCScommand plugin that needs to be installed separately. This provides commands to interact with git. Help text is provided.
- gitv is a 'gitk clone' plugin.
Git supports using vim diff to resolve merge conflicts

To make it the default merge tool across all your repos
