The egit plugin enriches Eclipse with knowledge about git
repositories, and allows you to download and upload commits (as well
as branch and the sorts...)

Regarding a JSON-syntax aware editors, I ran into this editor earlier this week:

that's the easiest way to share changes with a lot of people...
