One big advantage to switching from CVS to git is the savings in
disk space. With the example above it's pretty obvious: you can
save exactly the same information using git in 1/6 to 1/4th the space.
Clearly you have tenacity and a desire to see change. If I were you I'd
join the SCMSig:
(some of us still
hang out in #fedora-scm)
Schedule and request a meeting, host that meeting and have your voice be
heard. I, for one, would attend whatever meeting you schedule and many
others in the sig would as well. Take a deep breath, send the email and
dive right in. (I'm being totally serious here, I'll be disappointed if
I don't get a meeting request soon :-P
