Maybe Shawn can shed some light on this but jgit.console's
Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment is JavaSE-1.6 indicating that it
requires 1.6... jgit itself will run on 1.5+

Yes, that's correct, org.eclipse.jgit.console is an optional bundle used by 
org.eclipse.jgit.pgm which in case it is available installs a 
based authenticator  to prompt the user for a password.
is available only since java 1.6. When org.eclipse.jgit.console is not around
instead an AWT based authenticator is installed by org.eclipse.jgit.pgm.

So in a nutshell password prompt from pgm is popping up an AWT dialog
when running on Java 1.5, while on Java 1.6 this is possible directly
from the console.
