Thanks, I'll try to have a look at that :)

Yup, that would definitely be a step forward. It might be good to do
something like, for example, take one of the packages currently in svn
and move it to git step by step in a wiki page or something like that,
in a practical way so everyone can learn without too much effort the
steps they would have to do for every transation.

Yup, that would be great, it would make things easier.

We don't have any scheduled AFAIK, but it should be doable. It would
be interesting. I don't know if everyone could be there anyway
(timezones, and so) but I think it would be good to start deciding on
the next steps after Lenny. One of the goals might be to switch to
git, or not, but we might want to talk about it.
Any other thoughts on this from the rest of the people?
