My vote is for #4 for the following reasons:

* It's simple and everybody understands it.
* Apache does not provide full support for git yet.
* I think we as a community need to figure out how to work together in
a more centralized environment before we get too decentralized. I
worry that the desire to move to git is in many ways a desire to "get
around" the problem of not being able to define a branching strategy
by adopting one in which each developer can have his or her own
branching strategy. My concern is that this will lead to us not really
working together much.

To be clear, I'm not opposed to moving to git someday when more of
these things are worked out - assuming we still want to.
