JGit still targets Java 5... :-)

We might be able to step up to a minimum of 6 or 7 based on the
minimum version of Java required to run the oldest Eclipse version
EGit supports.

with EGit 2.2 which I will release today the minimum Eclipse platform version is Indigo (3.7.2).
I checked the minimum Java version required by Indigo platform bundles:

org.eclipse.core.resources     J2SE-1.5
org.eclipse.osgi                     J2SE-1.5

org.eclipse.core.filesystem    J2SE-1.4            J2SE-1.4
org.eclipse.equinox.common  J2SE-1.4

org.eclipse.core.runtime         J2SE-1.3
org.eclipse.ui                         J2SE-1.3
org.eclipse.swt                      J2SE-1.3

so it looks like EGit 2.2 's Eclipse platform needs at least J2SE-1.5
