I didn't work much on 3.0 (git) beyond submission, because I was getting
a definite vibe that Raphael was interested in his quilt format and only
that format.

Perhaps Raphael in turn was sensing that I didn't have a deep knowledge
of git -- I had only used it for a month or so at the time. And in fact,
we now know a much better way to do a git based format. I have been
considering working on it again, after #554682 is fixed.

I think that's very wise.
