Thank you and are you are welcome. I can't contribute much in @x11 or
@drivers (I know C/C++ but lack knowledge of FreeBSD internals) so at
least can do some contribution here :)
As it happens, on a few occasions I was part of teams moving from SVN to
Git. And in every case the people's resistance was a much bigger factor
than the technological one. Then again, on each occasion the move was
much more about the workflow and tooling than just using Git vs SVN.
Developers were quick to adopt multiple branches, pull requests, review
comments, merges, automatic tagging and what not once they knew how it
all fits together.
I think it's the right move and FreeBSD community will benefit hugely
from it (which doesn't mean there won't be bumps and obstacles of course).
