Hi, I thought it might be interesting for all to read some feedback I got from some questions I made to the Joomla community, specifically, the guys and gals that have been implementing the decoupling of the Joomla framework: the Joomla Platform.
They currently still use svn officially but they have been experimenting with both mercurial and git. These are their responses so far: http://groups.google.com/group/joomla-dev-framework/browse_thread/thread/fd3b0151cc215c0e It may bring some insight to what a DVCS could do for the PHP community.
