As I have repeatedly said (and as you seem to consistently ignore), it
is impractical for the core infrastructure team to support multiple
SCM tools.  I'm not vehemently opposed to switching - but there needs
to be at least a modicum of thought put into it before sticking the
infrastructure team with a new SCM.

As I've repeatedly stated, a 'zone' does not offer you anything at
all.  The fact that you're asking for a zone indicates that you don't
understand how git is designed to work.  It is meant that you have a
local copy of the entire repository.  Having a remote copy sitting on
another server is to defeat the purpose of a dSCM.

First off, we will *not* be deploying any services that don't have a
thought-out and documented plan.  This is simply good system
administration practice.  If you continue to ignore this and whine and
blather on, you simply won't get anywhere.  I won't apologize for
asking that you spell out what it is that you want before considering
anything.  -- justin
