Correct me if I'm wrong, but the developers are now free to choose any version 
control system that the infrastructure team supports. That includes cvs, svn, 
git and hg, maybe bazaar too, I'm not sure.

If by "us" you mean the translation project, the decision of which VCS to use 
is not really ours to make. It's the developers choice and transifex is 
designed to save us translators from the work of handling all these VCSs 
ourselves. It will give us a centralized place to fetch and commit files once 
it's done.

Dimitris is probably the right person to answer your question about branch 
handling. Haven't we translated for the next release or next package version 
to come so far? I think keeping it that way would be simpler than having us 
handle many branches for all modules etc.

I don't know git myself, but hg does also support multiple branches in a 
single repository.
