[Savannah-help-public] coreutils is moving to distributed version control

Currently, the coreutils package uses CVS for version control. However,
I am shifting coreutils development to git -- or maybe even mercurial.
Will savannah support git or mercurial soon? I would also consider
FYI, I can already convert my coreutils module (with 15 years of CVS
history) into a git or mercurial repository, preserving branches, history,
etc. There are several advantages to using a distributed version control
system -- I doubt it'll help if I list them here. However, that said,
I did do an informal survey and some experiments with git, mercurial,
monotone, and svk, and finally settled on git for coreutils. But I do use
mercurial, too, and find it quite usable, featureful and well-maintained.
