I'm not a LibreOffice developer, and the code I contributed to is outside core, but I believe an important factor here
is that, as far as I know, the current LibreOffice setup has 20 or so
git repositories, which are meant to be consolidated into one sooner or
later, with a non-trivial migration.

So, if we aim at collaboration, the choice is not only about technology
but also about repository layout; and this of course makes the picture
much more complex, because you can't satisfy everybody.
