I can understand this. Fortunately, non of the CouchDB committers do anything
with git. We all work exclusively with the Apache SVN repository.

The only use of git in or around CouchDB is by users wanting to hack on personal
patches or branches, totally separate from the official repository.

The only reason I suggested git, and provided a link, is that it seems to be
already quite a popular thing for people to be using with the project.

I, for one, don't even have it installed. :)

I hope this clears things up a little!
