SVN to me is a much nicer version of CVS, but still CVS nevertheless. What do people think about Mercurial (http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/)?

It makes sense to me to move to svn.

Git is another can of worms altogether.  I think we would need a significantly larger community for that sort of fragmentation to make much sense.

Hmm, for encouraging development (assuming that learning the revision control system was a minor cost, which I think it is not here), then in principle it would be better to have many independent fronts of development as in git or Mercurial than a centralized system. For example, looking at the Linux kernel git repository (http://git.linux.org, there's a sense of ownership that seems good to encourage.  On the other hand, if converting over to svn is easy on savannah, that's a good solid improvement.
