I don't particularly like git, but git would be a huge improvement over

Assuming for the moment that git (and github) is used, the core devs
will probably find it easier to pull patches from other git trees
than manually applying patches from the mailing list.

Secondly, havin geany in git will make life easier for people like me
and Jiří Techet who are keeping a bunch of patches on top of what is
currently in SVN (I've currently got a set of 9 quilt patches I apply
to whatever is in SVN head).
