To add to this, we manage our Wordpress sites in Git as well. We include Wordpress's official Git repo (which syncs against their SVN every 15 minutes) as a submodule in our projects, referencing their version tags.

Here's the Wordpress git repository: https://github.com/WordPress/WordPress

It required some work to get the import set up, but we found it works very well for our purposes (especially since all of our custom code and themes is managed in git as well). It'd be happy to put you in touch with our git guru if you'd like to know more.
