In our meeting today, we decided to include the git package in our simple alpine linux docker image. I need this for EventGate in order to use an initContainer that clones a git repository.

Do not use alpine as a base for your containers if you want to execute them in production. That is strictly limited to debian-based images, for which we can create a reliable upgrade pipeline. Also, we don't want a distro proliferation in production.
Use one of the debian-based nodejs docker images instead. You can add git as an apt package via blubber AIUI.
