There's another reason I've been staying quiet too which is that past experience with VCS migrations has taught me that people tend to over-value some things and that discussion tends not to convince people in advance of direct experience. I think some of these topics will end up being moot once we've moved to git and gotten used to it. For example, I've seen talk of wanting to preserve linear history which is understandable since it's quite nice to have. However, I suspect we'll drop that after a month or so as people find 'git push' doesn't work very well on a high traffic repo and start looking for alternatives. At that point I think we'll end up switching to pull requests and accepting non-linear history. Similarly, I think the desire for incremental revision numbers will gradually fade as people get used to git.

Thanks for driving this Renato. It going to be a huge benefit to everyone once we have a solution in place.

When everyone is happy that we have enough proposals, Tanya's survey
should be brought forward, in which case I'll gladly offer my help
Regarding the survey specifically, and since I didn’t see a thread discussing survey options, I’d love to have a ‘I don’t mind what the solution is, I just want git’ option. Basically, ‘any of the above’.
For me, I’m very happy with the proposals being discussed, but mostly just want to move to a more reliable hosting service (full disclosure, I’m a fan of GitHub), and I use git-svn anyway so native git would be best for me.
Anyway, not trying to derail the discussion, just express that there are likely many others like me out there who are silent not because we don’t have an opinion, but because we just want git and don’t want to have an excessive number of +1’s on a thread saying so.
