[wp-hackers] Switching from SVN

I think Git is a better way but I understand that not everyone will. For 
some the issue is that they already know SVN (I already know Git so I'm 
totally in favour of that).

I think the real question for WP is, would going to another system 
increase the participation long term? I'd anticipate that no matter what 
change happened there would be some drop in participation as people 
would decide it's not worth it. But in a year would we have more people 
committing b/c of a transition to X.

If others feel it's appropriate for the list I'd really love to hear discussions about the pros and cons of the various alternatives especially as it relates to WordPress core and to plugins.
