Jut because those projects are running SVN does not equate to their
projects running _as efficiently as they possibly could be_.

Also, you keep posting links to SVN stats. This project was in a prolonged
wait period because we were/are waiting for code donations (Mustella, can't
make big changed without tests) and JIRA. It's hardly fair to compare our
activity to projects that have been running forever. Did they wait 8 months
for vital pieces of the project to make it thru legal review? I'm betting
thy didn't.
