While causing some confusion, the kate team seems to sucessfully handle
both svn and git. They're developing mainly in git now, but are porting
all patches from git to svn and vice-versa. Of course you'd have to find
one person who's able and willing to do this and understands enough of
all the code to resolve conflicts.

And moving to git doesn't necessarily mean needing the KDE git
infrastructure, there are other hosting solutions for opensource
projects and as a git repo has the complete history its no big problem
moving from one hosting to another...


There is a 20% chance of tomorrow.
