Because despite Baryard's well reasoned pleas, it has yet to be made.
At least from my perspective, at this point it pretty much boils down to
following the penguinista masses....
I have it on fairly reliable authority that HP is/will be moving to Git.
Now I'd really like to get a look at the supporting documentation for
this, but perhaps it's nothing more than more penguinista kook-aide?
Indeed, as Garret points out, whenever I see this question come up the
ensuing discussion seems to typically be more along lines of personal
preference/familiarity and/or religious war than technical analysis.
