The switch to a dvcs would be useful since local version control would
then be integrated with the main vcs (if you wanted it to be).

If Geany switches then the process needs to be decided and promulgated first.

Can personal branches be hosted on your host or only branches created
by you, allows sm, the new unstable and bs to operate mostly like now,
separate but globally visible. Who is your host?

Who has permissions to do what, Git can have very fine control over
who can do what.

What workflow are you going to follow?  eg stable branch only releases
are committed to, unstable that reviewed changes and patches are
committed to? or what?

Having both SVN and Git committable is difficult so everyone would
have to switch.

As usual the problems are non-technical ones :)
