My concerns about git (from a Horde standpoint):
* Conversion away from cvs eliminates one of the best dev resources -  
cvs.horde.org.  git does not seem to have been written with this kind  
of log viewing activity in mind (not to mention a backend would need  
to be written for chora)
* Concerns about distributed/non-centralized development don't seem  
particularly important for us since we don't have large amounts of  
developers, crushing amounts of patches, issues with merging, and/or  
stepping on other dev's toes.
