One more thing about this issue: the main difference between SVN and GIT is
that GIT would allow me to extract useful patches from a contributors GIT 
If contributors have write access, then both SVN and GIT allow for erroneous 

Now I do not want to _extract_ useful patches from contributors code.
It is up to contributors to carefully _prepare_ patches that are as
comprehensive as possible for me. Contributors who are sure
about what they are doing may commit themselves.

This does not withstand that _you_ may use GIT for maintaining a local copy
and preparing your patches. Max maintains a GIT mirror for this.

Best wishes, --Joris
