In general, Breezy should work the same way with Git repositories as with
Bazaar repositories. I.e. you'd just run "bzr branch
git://". Limitations with the Git supported in Breezy are documented here:

Do you have an example BitBucket URL that doesn't work for you, so I can test it here?

I don't believe we have actually tested Breezy on Mac OS X, though I'm not
aware of any changes that we made since the Bazaar released that would break
Mac OS X.
