Subject Re: Summary of the SVN/Git acccess

mmmm...so, if this is true, I think this should be moved ASAP since this
was voted some months ago, and this is one of the brakes of this project.
I'm sure that if we modernize version control with git and github people
would be contributing more easily with pull requests.

So, hope we could see official and real git and github support soon.

Thanks Chris for such important note!

Carlos
