git to replace CVS, Bugzilla, mailing lists, more at Eclipse.org

With all the DVCS talk at EclipseCon and in The Bug, I quickly became convinced git is the way to go.  With git, we can not only remove CVS and SVN, but Bugzilla also.  Want to report a bug?  Just file a git.  Got a patch?  Just commit it, and git will figure itself out.

Mailing lists?  No more.  Just send a git, and everyone will get it.  Got it?

XMPP and IRC will also be deprecated -- you just need to git someone.  For IRC channels, just set up a git hub.

Newsgroups and web forums are so passé.  Just post a git.

Our MySQL databases will also be migrated to git.  Instead of SQL queries, a git fetch will be used.  Much more efficient, and there's no need for a central servers, as all fetches will be handled by peers.

These are exciting times!
