Integration into Trac is much better. i.e. I can close a bug report in
Trac with a commit message. That's lacking in GIT. I can easily
reference commits from wiki pages and so on. 

Also, PA compiles on Win32 fine too. And the last time I looked git
for Win32 wasn't really ready yet.

There's a git plugin for Trac, but quite frankly it sucks. And hooking
Trac up with a different source browser is difficult because you lose
all the tight integration between the source browser and the rest of trac.

Anyway, I see enough reasons to keep SVN around for now. I'd be happy
to switch entirely, but I do love the nice integration of SVN and Trac.
