Sorry.  I thought I had answered this before.  Yes -- I subscribed 
piuparts-devel a couple of weeks ago.

Very good.  You have both greater experience and greater knowledge (I 
didn't know snapshots.d.o exists).
Not to mention greater responsibility as official maintainer.

Yes -- I am familiar with and comfortable with git.  I prefer mercurial, 
but I recognize:

1) that definitely places me in a minority. and
2) that MAY be because I pushed for, and have been using, mercurial at 
my day job for 3+ years,

IMHO, there are legitimate, well-reasoned proponents on both sides of 
the 'git vs mercurial' question, in addition to the flamewars that seem 
to get started on regular basis (still).  At least from my perspective, 
the two seem to have become very close to each other (in a positive way).

More opinion ... With current # of people and level of activity, I 
wouldn't think svn is any meaningful obstacle,  Though this may just be 
another case of your having greater experience and greater knowledge :-)
