I took a look at it. The existing git18 SRPM is a bit silly, but
workable, and I've published some building tools for git-2.1. at
https://github.com/nkadel/git21-srpm. I basically did this.

*. Grab the '.gitignore' and the 'Makefile' I like to use form
* Get or make a new tarball from the git 2.1.2 repo tag
* Get the git18 SRPM from
* Extract its contents with "rpm2cpio" in a direcoty with the Makefile
and .gitignore
       *) Replace the references to "1.8.2" (rpm -U) can work)
       *) Disable the "Patch5" Makefile patch, that's already included
upstream these days.
       *) Make empty placeholders for the htmldocs and manpages
tarballs. Those only exist there because RHEL 4 and DentOS 4 can't
compile the documentation.
       *) Make RPM's and SRPM's on your revelevant CentOS system, or
use 'mock' to build them.
