INFRA circles, the reports are that no one is enthusiastic about Git
and they are (as is obvious from their lack of action on JIRA tickets)
unwilling to support it. This means that if we make the move now (<-
note this qualifier), we're likely to be "on our own". I'm not sure

just about to graduateā€¦
