I've been hesitating to change from cvs in my projects because there
seem to be too many options available, and it isn't clear exactly what
the con/pro's are for each alternative.  Frankly, I hadn't even heard
about git until a few weeks ago, although I'm familiar with svn and
arch (of which I strongly prefer svn).  Has anyone made a comparison?

I'm particularly interested in emacs support, external tools support
(e.g., cvs2cl to produce changelogs, viewcvs.cgi for web browsing,
statcvs e.g. <http://josefsson.org/gnutls/statcvs/>), authentication
options (anonymous, ssh, etc), portability (Windows?).  Support at
Savannah may be a factor too.
