Libgit2 support and linear algebra for generic types

Organization: The Julia Language

Assigned mentors: Stefan Karpinski

Abstract: The objective of this project is to improve base Julia functionality in two different ways: 1) the integration of libgit2 as an alternative to shelling out in the package manager; and 2) the implementation of basic linear algebra operations for generic Number types, with special regard to BigInts, BigFloats and Rational numbers.
