My point was: I'm willing to help as far as I can (we need a solid BCEL release for FindBugs),
but I'm not willing to use SVN. It is stone age.
It just incredible waste of my/others time, and none of us has lot of free time.
The SVN history, branching, *everything* feels so slow/not usable after working with Mercurial
or Git, that it just wondered if it is time to switch.

But sure, if it is not an easy task, please focus resources on release.
