Ok, but so far you are the only one to be convinced.

Git is very light. it is not really an issue. We do it all the time on
many different projects.

As a matter of fact.. I constantly switch branches between 1.x and
master all the time on artemis. People do it on ActiveMQ5. If that was
a good technical reason we would need to switch back to SVN on Artemis
and ActiveMQ.. I don't think anyone would really aprove that.

However, I'm not sure if you are talking about the many directories as
part of the repo.

We would likely have these sub-directories as part of the git repo:


Just like you do when you check-out activemq5 or artemis with all the
modules available.

You can just tag when you make a release. It's not really an issue.
