Keep in mind that that is not what Mike is proposing. :-)
github has some cleverness that allows both svn and git clients to the same repository.
That being said, I think that this is a pretty large discussion:
- do we want to move to a DVCS?
- if so, which one: hg or git?
- if we move, will IU host it, or will we use Bitbucket / github?
- what do we do about a bug tracker?
- continue to use Trac?
- use the bug tracker on Bitbucket / github?
- who will do all the migration work?
- official source code migration
- existing open ticket migration
- user migration
- ...probably some other things I'm not thinking of
- who will develop the "best practices" guidelines for use of a DVCS? Examples:
- is rebasing before committing encouraged/required/discouraged/...etc.
- how do we do version release branches -- different repos, or branches within a repo, or ...?
