Until about a year ago, I was still periodically building Git from
source on MacOS 10.5, and there hasn't been any outright effort to
drop support for older MacOS, so I expect that 10.8 is still supported
by the Git project itself.

However, whether various packagers of (pre-built) Git support 10.8 is
a different matter.

It's not clear what installer you used? Was it the package from
git-scm? Was it from Homebrew?

I would guess that, even if the git-scm installer no longer supports
10.8, it is likely that Homebrew does. Have you tried it?

If both those options fail, you can always build from source.
