Are there any alternatives to ToroiseGIT for Ubuntu?

I'm looking for something to integrate GIT with nautilus in the context menu.

Like TortoiseHG used to (replaced with HG scripts)

I suggest rabbitvcs, which supports nautilus integration for SVN and GIT:

+1 If you like the way tortoise works, you'll love rabbitvcs. Also there is a rabbitvcs plug-in to gedit so you can manage your versioning without leaving the editor. – Richard Holloway Feb 22 '12 at 9:25
Sounds cool I'll check it out. it would have been a bonus if it supported mercurial also. – zeitue Feb 22 '12 at 9:28

SmartGit is fabulous -

I've used Tortoise and for Git the SmartGit makes it that simple to use.
