Hi,

I was curious about the status of the proposal for migrating from SVN to Git 
(https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/Moving%20to%20Git).

The relevant page on the Trac wiki hasn't been updated for over 5 years and 
since then Git has become much more popular (the de facto standard for new 
projects, more or less), while:

- SVN support is diminishing (e.g. in Xcode).

- Git support on Windows is much better than 5 years ago.

- It's difficult to find free robust SVN clients / UIs, unlike the plethora of 
options available for Git.

- Most young and relatively new developers (with less than 10 years of 
experience, like myself) are much more comfortable with Git and maybe have not 
even used SVN before, so moving to Git could encourage more users and 
contributors.

Is there any progress in this direction?

Thank you, in advance!
