of course.

I think there are still plenty of svn users out there, and switching
completely away from svn, would be a larger change for them.

At the moment (but this might just be me), branches in GIT works real bad
with our current build system. I have f.x. 3 branches and trunk, all being
build more or less daily. I tried with GIT, where branch switching is
supposed to be very simple. The branch switch itself is simple, but I
always needed a complete build --all, because the GIT do (of course not)
preserve the different unxlngx6.pro dirs.

That would be a problem, how will you do merge back ? The merge facility in
both directions is very important.

If we switch to git, svn will be a ReadOnly mirror and we cannot do merge
etc. in svn.
