I'm +0.9995 for git: some bits I like, some bits I don't (it's awful for 
binary data). And you need more than just a release process locked down, 
you need the developers understanding following a good process. If you 
have written down process docs there, I'd love to see them.

apache infrastructure are discussing git -what would be best would be to 
start with a non-critical project, such as one or more of the moved 
contrib projects (like MR-Unit), so we can see that it, gerrit, etc work 
well within the Hadoop developer world.
