So do I and I used Mercurial but did not like it.

That is what I see with other projects as well.

I'm very restricted in time (Job and family), so I do not like to spend time to change the repo software.
SVN is installed at all PCs and laptops I can use for SD, because we use it for other projects as well.

Therefore I vote to keep SVN.

Cheers

+1
What are we trying to gain by switching?
Anyone have any idea how disruptive changing might be?
How long will the repo be unavailable?
How big of an effort and who will do it?

I am learning git and I like the local branching. I think that it makes managing and testing patches easier.
I am also a long time SVN user and have no problem staying with it.
(since it requires no effort or down time).
I haven't used Bazaar of Mercurial at all. I have used a couple of other proprietary systems. IMO there is always an amount of work to merge a branch back into the trunk. The effort is proportional to how long the branch lives as a separate entity.
