Yes it does matter. git-svn has the problems it has because it traditionally had lower review standards than the rest of git. So yes, we're being more careful nowadays about the long-term ramifications of changes. > Either solution would be a vast improvement.

The self-obsoleting nature of git-svn makes it hard for anybody to stick around. Most of the original contributors (including myself) hardly see an SVN repo anymore, so users/contributors forget about it and new ones come along... I want to make sure things stay consistent with the core parts of git, especially if the Perl were to be replaced with a pure C version. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
