I've found my productivity significantly increase since the svn->git
transition, mainly because the cross-branch hops and merges are so much
quicker and easier now...
How about we switch to git after the coming release?

This discussion has been had already in the past. Some things:

1. We want to stick to sourceforge, so http://sourceforge.net/p/forge/documentation/Git/
This because sourceforge has been a good steward through the years.

2. We are afraid non programmers will have difficulties with git as opposed to svn. So translators, new contributors.

3. The git mirror of John is up and running for those who want git now

Personally I would like to switch. But I don't know if sourceforge git is good, I don't know how difficul it would be, and I don't know how easy non-programmers would have it.
