I look at git in terms of the ease of use for branch/merge patterns and the
support of pull requests for code review and historical change tracking.
It is really far superior in its flexibility.  Even just the diff facility
if a big step forward.

I do agree that projects benefit significantly from governance.  If it
degenerates to everyone creating their own fork then nothing good would
come of that.  I am not suggesting git because it makes forking easier.
But because it makes team development easier.
