Seconded. While it's good to bring up alternatives, I don't like
evangelizing things at all. Use what works for you. It's good
to have a choice. Monoculture is a problem and making github
even more central and prominent than it already is is not a
good thing for us all. If anything we need to get darcsden and
friends enhanced. Having all three dvcs'es used will put
more pressure on content transportability between them
and help in the long run. I think all three are nurturing
each other.
