For reference, Jordi's blog:


The starting paragraph should make clear why he is determined not to
listen to any experience or talking point from anybody regarding git:

    When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for a
    software user to disparage a thoroughly hostile DVCS, there is no
    recourse but to blog about it. Thus, software diplomacy has failed,
    and we must face the fact that I irredeemably hate git. To prove
    this, let these facts be submitted to a candid world.

I don't see that we have much to gain from indulging in his mission of
hate here.
