I think Aleksej has a good point about the phrasing of the mail that started this off. It read to me as a decision that was arrived at, not a kicking off of discsussion. In particular, it used "will" to describe how things might work if certain steps would taken, which implies that a plan has been approved. In the discussions I've had so far (a bit of which hast been discussion among pmc) the only things that seem really agreed on are moving away From sourceforge (because of the same problems that are causing everyone else to leave) and, based on the earlier larger dicussions about moving NetBSD and pkgsrc to a DVCS, it seems pretty clear that a DVCS is in order. Given a DVCS, it also seems clear to me (this is just me speaking now) that the only viable choices are git and hg. If anyone thinks that staying with sourceforge is a good idea, please speak up and provide rationale.
