Switching from CVS to a dVCS was a good move (I think you agreed with
this on previous posts on this ml.) But, if you wished to attract users,
choosing a tool that requires from almost everybody to learn it for the
sole purpose of contributing to Emacs was most unfortunate. Emacs would
be better off with CVS on this regard.
