Right now, two of the biggest sources of hacking energy in the
Emacsosphere are in git repositories separate from Emacs' own bzr
repository: Org Mode and Gnus.  Our switching to git will help reduce at
least the degree of separation.

Whether those projects eventually host their "socially agreed on"
primary development branches in Emacs' repository is another question; I
don't know those dev communities well enough to say, despite being a
heavy user of both packages :-).  But the mere fact that I instinctively
consider them to be somewhat separate developer communities from Emacs
itself may be partly an artifact of our having been on bzr for so long.
