git evangelism: enough already

As a person who uses Git extensively and thoroughly, and as someone works on/around two large open source projects (Chrome, WebKit) that are managed with svn, let me assure you: we've heard the "you should switch to Git" argument before. In fact, the last time we heard it was yesterday, and your mention today makes this statement remain true tomorrow. There is nothing new you can add to this conversation.

(In contrast, I feel like Linux evangelism has died down from a similar level over the years -- it still exists, just not as persistent. But maybe I've just become numb to that.)
