Subject Re: What would it take to move to Git?

This will be optimal, and will make possible almost whatever refactor or
modification that people would want to make in Apache Flex. As I said
taking into account that Flex is targeting version 5 and is not a new
project GIT is not an a must.

Projects with long history have refactoring and change needs that are
aggresive through all its codebase. Without a system like Git, I can't see
how it could be done in SVN.
