And as been said it is being worked on. I'm afraid the recent increase
in complaints might in fact be hindering the process, as who gets
motivation boosts from people announcing their retirement from the
project because of you?

I'm not touching the planet issue though, I don't really know about that.

It's not an argument, it's discussion ;)

I hope nobody took my comments as suggestions that we should switch.
The migration to svn was a welcome and sensible choice. And even if I
do think migration to git would be even more beneficial and much(?)
easier than the migration from cvs to svn, being a realist I know that
there would be even greater storm of complaints against it for all
other reasons. And that would not help anyone.

I simply wanted to note that using git doesn't mean the rules of
engagement have to change, even if the tools do.
