branching. No need to have a bunch of duplicate svn checkouts lying around or wait for svn
to checkout or merge...

How is it faster? It takes me 25 seconds to pull down a fresh svn
checkout. it takes like 30 minutes to run the tests before actually

So, i dont think we should use git for so called "speed" that doesnt
matter (please, instead of arguing for git, spend time fixing the solr
distributed tests to not take ages and ages), or for distributed
features that dont matter (apache has a centralized repository).

Given that its distinct from the contributor experience and would only
impact committers, i currently see *zero* advantages for switching to
git, only a hell of a lot of disadvantages.
