No. It does't happen in 1.9, it will happen in 2.0.

Then I don't understand what you mean by "graduation".

You are blind. Move git-p4 and git-svn out of your tree.

You know what will happen.

What is the benefit of being in contrib/? Even you yourself argued that
there is not much point of 'contrib/' nowadays[1]. The only reason we
might want something in contrib/ is so that it has a chance to mature
before becoming part of the core.

It's much more beneficial to *our* users if these tools are distributed
by default.

Really? So why did you say this?[2]

Jeff said the same thing when he was acting as maintainer[3], and you
didn't correct him:

All this time I've been operating under the impression that once
git-remote-hg proved itself, it would graduate out of contrib.

So basically you tricked me, and I wasted insane amounts of time chasing
a target that was impossible to reach.

Fuck this.
