The svn infrastructure we have now just works, and from the standpoint
of having to manage ~200 websites, it's relatively simple.
Replicating that functionality with Git is possible, but adds
relatively little in terms of functionality. With the projects on
folks plates right now, the contractors at least, won't have time to
begin looking at this for at least 18 months. Volunteers could of
course tackle this if wanted.
