That's a fair question. As Jeff, I really like git and would to move
to that. I'm quite familiar with svn too, and I just don't think the
benefits from moving to svn outweigh the downsides to switching, not
now and not in the long term.
So I think it's a good question to ask, to see if there is enough
consensus among the core contributers to switch to git, or if we
should just stay with cvs,
