Just to have it mentioned somewhere:  At least legend has it that the
existing OOo repo is too fat to handle as a single git repo, and allegedly
that is one reason LO split this into multiple (which I consider very
unfortunate, given that the code base is rather monolithic).

(Apart from that, I can only second Mathias' statement that you do not
really want to go back from distributed to centralized.  But I guess we can
certainly also live with svn. --- We even managed to make do with cvs and
even less friendly stuff in the past...)
