"For Python 3 libraries, use python-modulename. For applications, use the program name. In either case, the package name should be entirely lowercase."
The module name is "git", thus the package name should be "python-git". Feel free to disagree with me, but I'm going to keep maintaining my package regardless. Don't merge it.

"The name(s) of the package(s). This should consist of lowercase
alphanumerics and any of the following characters: @, ., _, +, - (at
symbol, dot, underscore, plus, hyphen). Names are not allowed to start
with hyphens. For the sake of consistency, pkgname should match the
name of the source tarball of the software: for instance, if the
software is in foobar-2.5.tar.gz, use pkgname=foobar. The name of the
directory containing the PKGBUILD should also match the pkgname."
