There were several reasons for doing so:
- After having used git for some time now, subversion really feels awkward to use, even though no branching and merging was required so far.
- It should now be much easier for users to maintain their own extensions of the plugins.
- I will need to reinstall my server in the near future. I was not looking forward to reinstall subversion and make proper backups of all the repositories. Having the code in git, I don’t need to make server backups of the repositories anymore.
When the server gets reinstalled, the subversion support will be dropped completely.
