A relatively large number of people suggested that it would be
easier for people to follow and submit patches if the repository
used git, because that is a very common contribution mode for other
large projects. The hope was (I believe) that this would let people
slowly step-up into contributor/committers.

I suspect its too early to see a real impact of that (theoretical)
idea yet, but emacs is the only large project I still follow at this
point, so that’s a raw guess.
