Yes, good point Bertrand. Me being a glass half full kind of person I
read the original content as positive in the sense it provided
valuable forewarning for those planning on moving to Git. I was hoping
that we could express it as "this is what you should plan for if you
choose to switch to Git", we certainly don't want Git vs SVN content.
