I don't have a preference either way about what we use. All the tools work fine for me. However, if we want to change, I would prefer to not be the one to make the conversion. I helped with the original conversion from CVS to SVN and it was a fair amount of work with a few nervous moments while our precious data was in limbo.

I do think that GIT has a slightly higher barrier to entry for new (especially non-technical) contributors. Also, I would rather not have to maintain (and coordinate) the project resoures across multiple backends. We already have to coordinate the sourceforge site with our godaddy hosted web site. Adding one more is just that many more passwords and admin panels to remember.

In my opinion, nothing beats the github interface - with the ability to edit and commit from a web page and to send and apply pull requests from the web.

either option 2 or 3.
