git by itself doesn't need system administration as it can be simply LOCAL to your machine.  Version Control can be useful to just 1 user but it really excels when multiple users can contribute, fork, share

if there are more than 1 user then it does need system administration
Mihai BarbosTrying to tame bits. They're nasty.
I have to disagree with David on this one.
Depends on what you mean by system administration. It MIGHT need SOME administration if you want to setup a main repo and satellites, but it is a decentralised system where all repos are equal. Having a main repository is a matter of convention, basically.

Being able to use a version control system is mandatory, though. You know, the greater the power, the greater the responsibility.

Depending on how many participants are there, there are several scenarios. For a small team, the others can be "upstream" and they can synchronise between themselves.
If you can tell me a little bit more about your scenario, maybe I can also tell you more.

Also, have a look at github and Atlassian Bitbucket.
Anyway, in a team of 3 to 5 developers, we have used git, without problems, without a central repository. It just needs discipline.
