Our convention is to follow upstream convention.  Guile, Linux, Emacs
are all capitalized upsteam, which is why they are capitalized in Guix
documentation.  It's up to the upstream project to choose.

Plus, cgit seems to pay a lot of attention to it.  See, the title is:
    cgit - CGI for Git
And then:
    Building cgit involves building a proper version of Git.

Clearly they acknowledge that Git is capitalized (because upstream
decided so), but cgit is not.

So I think we should not capitalize it :-)
