Ionic2 rc0: Is git a system requirement?

I installed Ionic2 rc0 on our student pcs at university.

ionic info


Cordova CLI: 6.3.1
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.0
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.1.0-beta.1
OS: Windows 7 SP1
Node Version: v6.7.0

Starting a new v2 Project

ionic start test --v2

results in an error that git is missing.
When I add git to the system and include it in the system path, it works.

I wanted to confirm if git is a system requirement for Ionic 2 projects?

If yes, maybe you can add it to the documentation page at

Many thanks and best regards,
