Subject Re: Plans for migrating to SVN?

I have always taken this conversation as Git Vs. SVN, not GitHub. 

I think it's clear that the technical arguments of X Vs. Y are thin. The real issue I don't
see addressed enough is the culture change. PhoneGap is strong, but it isn't immune to defection
if the cultural changes imvolved in moving to SVN are perceived to be greater by the community
than the move to Apache. Community shocks have occurred in the past and sunk projects. I am
on the fence about this.

Are we mixing up the arguments for GitHub with those for Git?  I mostly
read arguments for Git, with a "GitHub is a convenience".  That's certainly
how I feel.
