Great to hear that. If I find time, I'll do that.

Matthias also wrote me offlist, that he either prefers to stay in svn,
or use bzr, but not git (if I understood well).

The problem with bzr is that it seems to me it is mainly used in
Ubuntu, but that's about it. Also compare for example the number of
packages in the respective vcs:


(git seems to me like a clear winner)

Well, I don't mind either, I know both hg and git quite well and bzr a
little. But I prefer to just use just one vcs for everything, and that
is git in my case, as I think it has the biggest momentum now.
