Move to git?

Hi folks, There was a previous (several?) discussion about moving the
source to git? I kind of thought that the conclusion was "yes"? What
I would be very keen to see the code move to some kind of dvcs - I have
a desire to develop some enhancements to our local installation and I
confess that I find it *massively* easier to maintain a fork using some
kind of dvcs than SVN... I concede that it should be possible for me to
use git locally and pull from svn upstream, but I have had various
failures making that work in practice, seems somewhat fragile..?
What is the current status? Any chance I might raise the idea as a
serious prospect again? Note I do think running some kind of modern
dvcs is a significant boost to attracting external developers...
Additionally I would lightly suggest that github can be a great place to
host and can be a slightly positive marketing tool (I will accept
opinions vary a lot on that...)
Thanks for listening!
