After seeing your statistics and looking at the 14 unknowns it looks like a binary option might be better. It could be git or other, with maybe a comment field for other.

guessing may be unreliable. I attached a quick and dirty script.
Alternatively you can have a dropdown box that defaults to git. Given
the monoculture of git almost nobody would have to change it :-)

The cvs one is a challenge: it seems cvs lacks the concept of a repo
container-tools has removed the repo.
vmware/phon seems a typo which should be vmware/photon.

Also given that this allows for some easy statistics:
The git dominance is huge :-)
