    I was reading this thread because I rarely if ever had read anything in the Unofficial Builds forum and thought I would see what's going on. Has anyone's mind changed about SVN vs Git 5 years on?

    The unreliability of the host could be a compelling argument but we have worked around several SourceForge outages rather than commit to change and now that Microsoft owns GitHub, GitHub's past may not be a reliable predictor of its future.
    You just vehemently agreed with me

    git != github

    That's all I had to contribute to this conversation.

    If you want to use git with the codebase, you're free to use git-svn. That's what I use, and I believe hola also uses that setup. I agree that there isn't a compelling reason to migrate from svn -> git, especially given the existence of said compatibility layer.

    Point noted. But I recall very few discussions about tools because you can access either kind of repository with the other tool suite if you are motivated enough. So on a practical basis the discussion has always been about where the repository is hosted (and which technology) and SourceForge and GitHub have been the obvious (but not only) choices. So I assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that the only reason to revive the discussion was to (re)consider hosting.
