Is changing the version control system really going to change the 
problems we have?

The same goes for maven or not, gradle or ant, etc.

One direction wants a stable release with bugfixes, and strict 
maintaining of the original api, the other side wants to change things.

No resolution in sight. I really like the Apache governance, and it 
gives everybody the freedom to fork it under its own. Apache is 
definitly not the problem here.

Apache is a tool, a tool that shows us that we need to cooperate in 
order to make progress. You can switch to git, and fork all you like, 
like so many other projects. But then you have a few forks, sitting 
stale on github. With sometimes an individual caring about it, or more 
times not. Apache goes beyond individuals, and currently it shows we 
haven't made that step.
