A few different things:
- First of all, we must agree to the switch. So far, it's mainly you
and Reimar (?) who are pushing for it.
- We must be reasonably confident developers know how to use git, or
there will be trouble.
- The repos need to be converted and verified. Because of the
libswscale mess, this is less trivial than it might seem.
- The server needs to be configured to allow git write access in a
secure fashion. With the frequency of breakin attempts, giving all
devs normal shell accounts is undesirable, so something else must be
