I think moving to git is going to be a good thing, but there really
should be a transition period. There is a huge base of knowledge with
CVS in the X.Org community, but relatively little with git.
I would like to see some pointers for how to use git, where to get the
tools, how to build them on all of the architectures we support and what
we want the basic policies to be for pushing changes to the master. I
think simple links would suffice to bootstrap the process. We can
rebuild the rest of the community knowledge within the wiki.
