Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Moving to Git...

i still think the scm is not an issue. the %age of committers is negligible
compared to the number of users whatever you use. So you need a nice
product first. Tools follow or speak about scm but we can speak
abou tbuild tool too, "gradle is far better than maven" doesn't help
the topic at all
