It's also overkill and a bad idea due to its complexity, as Martin
said. Dig through the threads linked from to find
all the other arguments against it, especially by Pierre, who
probably knows more Git than you and I together.

If I were asked about which source package format will become
standard in Debian for squeeze or squeeze+1, I'd have to say v3
quilt, for *sure*. The git/bzr were nice ideas but are never going
to make it, IMHO.
