That doesn't mean we shouldn't question moving to a better system. Git is a
better SCM system than SVN in many aspects. Flex was built on SVN, sure,
but under the control of a corporate entity. It is now completely open
source, its quite different having many developers whose activity is coming
in and out of the project.

The SCM infrastructure is important. If you don't view it as such then I
believe that you should reconsider, it is extremely important.

Again, this is about Flex, and moving it forward, in the best direction. My
argument is that Git is the best direction for it, and I've stated reasons
for that throughout the thread. Everyone's argument against it has just
been "i dont want to learn X", but in my opinion, nothing of substance.

Make other email threads about this and start the conversation. This thread
is about moving to Git.

SVN worked so well under a corporate entity with EMPLOYEES that had to
follow a _lead_. We are not employees, we do not have a lead and we have
lots of devs that will be in and out of the code. Git will support this
much better than SVN.

The SCM of the project is just as important as any issue.
