I totally agree with Hasso here. Maintaining two official SCM system
for our code base is IMO to much work for to little outcome (even if its
fully automated). Furthermore maintaining the repos will consume time
of developers, so they stop coding ...
Not to forget: If we have two official SCMs we have to answer questions
about the handling/installation/$whatever on the lists for two systems.
Sure, we can add some entries to a FAQ, but if I look at our current
documentation effort, it is unlikely that somebody will take care of
My personal conclusion: 2 SCMs => 2x work (and I don't think the
benefit is doubled).
