The following subjects came up during developer discussions at Sharkfest
 this year:

Git (cue ominous music). I managed to install SubGit (a bidirectional Git
↔ SVN gateway) a few months ago. It seems very nice but I wasn't crazy
about the idea of managing our current repository count times two. I
think we should just switch over to Git in the near term but I'd like to
hear everyone's opinion on this. If you would be severly impacted by
moving to Git please respond to the list or let me know privately.
Otherwise I'll start planning the switch for later this summer.

Moving to Github. Assuming we switch to Git it would be possible to host
 the official repository at Github.

Advantates: - I'm not sure that an in-house equivalent (e.g. Gerrit plus
a private repository) would be better than what Github offers.

Yes, Gerrit is better than github:

http://julien.danjou.info/blog/2013/rant-about-github-pull-request-workflow-implementation

 An additional argument for Gerrit which is not in Danjou's rant is that 
Gerrit's way of doing things helps with bisection:  Because rebasing is a
PITA in github, pull-requests are fixed (e.g. after a peer review) by
adding more commits on top of the existing commits, which is bad for
bisecting, as all the broken commits are still visible in the history.  On
the other hand Gerrit help having a very clean history, very close to what
is achieved in the Linux kernel by using git send-email.

Bonus: The integration with Jenkins for automatic build when a patchset is 
uploaded for review.


Second bonus:  Gerrit 2.6, which was released yesterday, have a complete
RESTful API.  That was one advantage github had until now (my experience with
github is that at the end, you do most of the work using curl and the RESTful
API).
