My life has been been pretty uncumbered by "primary" objectives and
various pointless events for the last month or so, so I didn't even
see the discussion. That's why I choose to answer in this thread, even
if very late.

My own opinion, as someone who just discovered the main repos tools
after a few months using the [community] tools only:
THEY ROCK. There seem by far technically superior: way cleaner and
based on ssh, subversion, etc.

That being said, it takes time to discover them, and they don't
provide a BIG gain of time as a user.

So I think the biggest point is the maintaining issues: is the effort
necessary to switch worth ending the duplication of changes in the
repos db format?

As I have absolutely no idea, I abstain.
