     1(Keeping two revision control systems around is a bad idea. It doubles the maintenance burden, doubles the points of potential failure, and saddles us with maintaining the old system even if we transition to yet a fourth revision control system down the road. If we made the transition, we would have to make it completely, which means figuring out ahead of time how to handle referring to specific revisions, both old and new. --ANR)

    13So Subversion is old and busted and git is the new hawtness.  This is established and completely beyond question.  Don't question it.  Also, I've wasted way too much time wrestling with svn's stupid quirks and failures, so I want Parrot to switch to using Git as its primary vcs.  The only problem is that Parrot has a lot of links and references to subversion revision numbers, both on this Trac site, in the source, in old messages, lots of places.  We don't want these to break and make people sad.  That means that even after we switch to Git, we'll need to keep the Subversion repository accessible using current links.
