Are we disagreeing on the meaning of "was[n't]" vs. "is"?

Believe it or not, and to my *great* chagrin, I was quoted in the
Linux Weekly News saying that (I supported git over bzr back then):


"Juanma Barranquero sums up his (and others') objections:

What I'm trying to say is: I won't discuss which dVCS we choose
(unless it makes Windows development a PITA). But I agree with Jeremy
Maitin-Shepard that the cause of free software is strengthened by us
selecting among the free alternatives the one that best serves our
technical, not political, needs."

(Being a Windows guy through-and-through, I haven't yet recovered from
the shame of being quoted in a Linux magazine...)

But that was then. Bazaar now is quite a different beast, and
apparently the next major release will natively support colocated
branches and then everything I like from git will be in Bazaar.
