And what reason is there to "just" mock someone for suggesting it in cases where using it is likely to solve the problem? The git repo has worked better than svn in the majority of cases where I have suggested it to people with specific problems. And it certainly has a lot better VDPAU support than svn. > > Mentioning it as a possible remedy for VDPAU problems is something you > > should also do if you really want to help users. > > Merging any GIT improvements into the official SVN repo is something you > should also do if you really want to help users... How would that help users? The improvements are already available to them in git. About the only benefit would be to the users who are using svn for historical reasons and don't know they would be better off with git. And solving that by getting most of the users to switch to git could be done with a lot less effort than by trying to move all the changes to svn (which is in practice unrealistic).
