The issue, as I see it, is that the best branching model to follow works
best in Git because of the much improved manner in which it handles
branching, merging, and additional features that SVN does not have such as
Rebasing and easily adding multiple remote forks.

I think in the discussions we've had most would agree that if we moved to
Git it would be to use the Git Branching Model that has been passed around:

So, in my eyes, I believe this to be both a technical problem as well as a
community problem. I feel that because we are on SVN we do not have
available to use the best options to choose from, especially considering we
have a Git solution readily available.

I would be willing to help out to test the Git infrastructure as much as
possible and document how the process of working with it would go.
