As for the Git repo, once 1.6 was being actively worked on I decided to
wait until after 1.6, for a couple reasons. First, it gave Gitorious a
chance to fix a couple of showstopper bugs (the work was contracted to
them by your compatriots at Nokia :-) ), such as the ability to block
pushes that can rewrite history (push -f behavior). Second, it gave our
conversion process a chance to mature a bit, as well as some of our
hooks for things like sending to Commit Filter.

Finally, and this was the most important reason, with 1.6 being worked
on I didn't want to split developer attention/add to the developer
workload by forcing a change in the middle of the 1.6 rampup. It seemed
logical to wait until after 1.6 as a result. I'll work on the DVCS
conversion immediately post-1.6.
