I spoke with infra-ops briefly, and here's the scope: We'd have to request 
by tomorrow to *potentially* participate in the Git alpha testing. That 
doesn't mean that we are obligated to do the migration, i.e. we still have 
time to back out should someone -1 / object to it.

So, unless I hear otherwise, I will send a proposal for ATS to join the git 
alpha testing to infra-ops tomorrow.
