Vincent, could you expand on that "more-than-dubious" qualification of
the conversion to git?

I don't want to be *at*all* combative, I just want to understand which
benefit(s) you consider more-than-dubious for git?

I tend to believe that such qualifications come from misunderstanding
git's benefits or simply trying to use in the *exact* same manner as
SVN (which can be done, but doesn't unleash the real benfits of git).

What would you like to know? Maybe we should continue this
conversation on IRC. I am confident that you'll find KiBi, myself and
Rhonda good enough to explain/tutor your git usage.

Still, I recommend you try to follow one of the multiple git tutorials
out there and try to stick with git for a week or so. If properly
done, I'm sure you'll fall in love.
