Actually there is one which is in it's infancy:
https://github.com/schacon/geef - it needs a lot of love to be useful
for any high-level git repository manipulations. erlgit uses git
executable, which is always a bad solution in a long run, so in a long
run I had a vision where geef implements low level libgit2 features
and erlgit uses geef to provide a easy to use high level API.
