I think we need to look at respinning SR2. For the last 18 months we have been pushing the entire community towards git, so now introducing a significant regression into eGit would just be bad news for our users.

No, I wasn't aware of this bug which is a bit scary, thanks for bringing it up here on cross-projects. Today I am trying very hard to stay calm, but it seems that this is not that easy.
Some of my thoughts...
- I think it's too late to stop Juno SR2 with this kind of bug. I would proceed today as planned, everything else seems to involve a very high risk.
- Discuss possible workarounds/solutions for Juno SR2 in parallel...
- If I were a member of the EGit team, I would try to educate my users how to upgrade to 2.3.1 via wiki, blog posts, newsgroup/forum, mailing list, other channels...

I'm sorry if this has been brought up and discussed elsewhere already. But there is a severe bug in EGit that makes EGit 2.3.0 shipped in Juno SR2 a high risk for users.
See here for details:

This week or next, update your b3aggrcon files with your "final
location" so the Juno aggregator could in theory be ran again. We don't
plan to, but, you never know. (And, don't forget to update Kepler, if
you are using the same input for that.)
Given that there is a severe bug in EGit. Isn't there a chance to update the repo and the packages with EGit 2.3.1?
I understand that it's very late in the game. But the packages will stay there forever on Eclipse.org for download by everbody. Those packages will contain an EGit version that contains a know bug which may delete uncommitted source code in a working copy.
