Hi Josh,

While I think its inevitable that Geany will move to a distributed VCS
and your offer of help is appreciated, there are a couple of things I
would like to note.

1. Asking one day before just isn't going to work for a community
project.  Now I don't know what I am doing from one day to the next,
so I appreciate that you also may not have much warning of impending
free time. :-)

2. Geany has just announced the timetable for the next release, with
string freeze in just a few weeks, thats not the time for major
changes of process.

3. There needs to be a plan for how all the processes would be
integrated with the new VCS, website changes, changelog processes,
nightly build integration, translation processes etc.

So if you want to start addressing those it would help in moving the
process forward.
