It feels like we recently migrated from CVS to SVN... which is why I am not
too excited about switching again to the latest and greatest thing... :)
Will keep it on the radar though...

I'll just confirm that the move to github for CAS by all accounts has
been a significant improvement, especially in terms of collaboration.
I believe the same is true for uPortal which made the move prior to
CAS. Git is just better than svn in a number of ways (distributed,
real tags, etc), but the dynamics of github is where the real gain is.
