  No matter how good that sounds, it's still not a "solution", it's a
workaround to the problem that we don't have (human) resources to do a
move to git.

  How about we set-up a task-force of volunteers who would want to
help in the move, each volunteer promising at least 3 hours a week? 3
hours is a very small amount of time but I am hoping that we'll be
able to gather at least 10 volunteers and together we can do it, even
using our spare time.

  In any case, after looking at the results of the survey we should
only look at hybrid/dual proposal like John's when we don't find any
way of moving to git in a reasonable amount of time (< 6 months).
