It strikes me that while we have more than 6,500 source packages managed with
Git, we are pushing for a source package format that does not work
transparently with them.

Also, it is very sad that, as a project, we can not decide whether we go for
3.0 (git) or not, or have a concrete list of resolvable objections from the
people whose work is direclty impacted by the use of this format.
