+1 for Git

We migrated from SVN to Git for our completed infrastructure, for many 
- Git use much less space than SVN, all the changes are in a single .git
- Git is awesome for branching
- Another great advantage is that there are many developers that know 
Git, and how the development process can be greatly improved.

PostgreSQL, one of my favorites open source projects that I use on my 
daily work, migrated the development process to Git from CVS.
