I agree. dpkg-dev should not be depending on any VCS and it should not
promote any particular VCS either. I know that git is the new black (oh,
wait, that was something else), but I personally don't like it. And I
especially dislike how so many git lovers are trying to push it onto
others, while there are perfectly good reason (not applicable to all
teams or projects of course) not to use git but some other VCS (be it
distributed or not.
