GHC migrating to Git

From cvs-ghc@haskell.org:

Hi all,

We now plan to do the git switchover this Thursday, 31 March.


There are some things that I will miss from Darcs (darcs send and the cases where "everything is a patch" actually does work well), but all and all I’m quite pleased to see GHC moving to Git.

    Realworld Haskell :)

    I wonder what Darcs would have been if Roundtree was a mathematician instead of a physicist…

    Git Interoperability is the one thing I’m most eager to see in Darcs now. I would love for us to bring the everything-is-a-patch UI simplicity to Git repositories. It may take us a while, but I think this is the long term target to shoot for, being able to use Darcs interchangeably with Git.

    Out of curiosity, was Mercurial considered? If so, what has made it lose against git?
