Git packages never installed

I had a problem with kate, like many others, with
pacman -Q | grep – -git
tried to see the git packages installed on my system, being sure not to find any, because I never installed git packages.
I was wrong, in fact I’ve got all that installed:

attica-git .r786.ga32b77b-1
karchive-git .r451.g940558b-1

How is that possible? I did something wrong?
In fact I can’t uninstall git packages for a question of dependencies.
Pleqse help

Apparently at some point you installed the kf5-git package group or something that depended on those packages. I don’t use KDE so someone else will have to take it from here.

That’s the reason why. You must have installed something that pulled in those -git packages as dependencies, and once that ball was rolling, you started pulling in more of them as dependencies of the dependencies.
