Subject: [hwloc-devel] Move to git?

We're having a discussion (again :-) ) about moving OMPI to a DVCS.

The short conclusion of the long conversation is: the OMPI dev community would be much more comfortable moving to a DVCS if they could see some success with other OMPI projects (e.g., hwloc and/or MTT).

Would hwloc be interested in moving to git? This would mean:

1. converting the existing svn to git
   --> including all historical log messages that refer to "rXXXX"
2. converting the existing trac to git
   --> including all trac tickets, comments, and wiki pages that refer to "rXXXX"

The OMPI devs -- who are mostly unfamiliar with git -- would like to see some close-to-home successes with git over a period of time that don't require heavy administrative maintenance over time (one of the pushback issues was that some organizations have hired full-time people to maintain/fix git repositories when they break/become unusable).
