I'm very against dropping sequential revision numbers; I've already filled the archive with a number of arguments and opinions on that, though :-) In any case, before we do that, I would say we should just stick with SVN, and let everyone who wants to use a DVCS use it over the existing bridges (I don't mean our read-only clone, but git-svn for example). We also mustn't lose our existing revision numbers when switching the VCS, as that would let us lose a lot of the usefulness of our existing bug database. I think those are really the minimal requirements for a switch.

That would indeed be great to know beforehand. I can't think of a good reason why that should slow anything down, though -- it needs to have the hash keys indexed, too, anyway. Bye, Axel.
