[Catalyst] [RFC] ditch svn

I think it's pretty clear that Subversion is a failure for our project.  We 
use topic branches heavily, and that's just not something svn (or really svk) 
is designed for.

I hearby propose that we switch to git.  I envision each project in trunk to 
be a separate repository.  That will allow us to easily manage commit 
permissions, and keep branches sane (branching Catalyst-Runtime need not 
affect Catalyst-Plugin-Foobar).  I'm willing to setup and administer All 
Things Git if we decide to switch.

Please read mugwump's excellent article on svk -> git here:


BTW, here's the complete Perl history imported into git:


They even use Catalyst in the URL, how can we not switch? ;)
