I share the same sentiments bit for bit, so I am in full agreement
with Dan, JGC, Allan & Ionut. I have always stressed the fact, even
just very recently, to someone who was interested in Arch, that even
though I use Git personally, Subversion makes the most sense for (our
kind of) packaging.

Aside from that, it's not about technical prowess, but about the worth
of the migration work needed. What do we gain and what do we lose? How
much significance do the gains have with regards to our workflow?
