IMHO the only nice features I like from git that aren't in SVN are
bisect and the possibility to work on a local copy without being online.
The first part is something we don't use for packaging, the 2nd part is
not a very big issue if we make our server faster.
Right now we're offloading a lot of crap to a new server, so gerolde
should get faster that way. Besides speeding up gerolde, there's another
thing that makes it slow for SVN: SSH. Make a master login to gerolde
and piggy-back your SVN+SSH connections on that, logins are much faster
that way.
