I think this is a great idea. I think it might be a lot of work and I think it will most likely take a good deal of co-ordination. There was a talk on using git for packages at DebConf, I know dam uses git, or I believe he does, to manage packages and of course the perl binary in debian itself is managed in git. So it looks like there is momentum and a set of best practices for doing this. I do think we'll want to think about any transition carefully since a lot of our tooling is built around our current set up.
