Yeah, I like it too (d'oh); It's a compiled blob written in C, and so very 
efficient in it's resource allocations and very fast.

Since we have to use it for the participation of some partners, we also have 
to use it for APT/RPM packaging efforts. I've helped Cyrus IMAP off of three 
CVS modules earlier this week, and they are now using GIT -which will make it 
much simpler for us to collaborate with them. We're using GIT to maintain our 
OTRS development as well as our websites (mostly styling), our Puppet modules
