  So say we all (?) but now is the problem of who will do the move to
git? Last I checked, nobody except for Federico volunteered for that
and IIRC he is going to do this using his "spare time" which we all
know might not be enough for such a big task. I hope I am wrong about
this and we do have enough resources to do the move but in case I am
right, I think we should seriously consider John's idea.
