Actually, looking closer at the results, the vote was split 8 - 8
between moving to Git and keep using SVN (for now). Only, the way the
vote was called fragmented the 'against Git' votes. Also of note is
that ALL THREE of the mentors thought it wisest to stay with SVN (for
now). But I don't want to redo the vote, I just don't want the project
to rush into this without thinking about the "in real life"

Well, I am concerned, and I have been since the time of the vote. But
now I am PPMC and have a responsibility to point out things that might
harm the project. Moving a project as complex as this to another SCM
is not a trivial thing and what I'm reading is that a few very vocal
people want this, but none of them is willing to volunteer with INFRA
to support this. That worries me and I have yet to be convinced that
this project can handle a move this big, at this time.
