No, I'm not claiming that the git repo would be superior to svn in
_every_ conceivable way. You invented that phrasing. I believe it's
better for most users. And what determines that trying to move
improvements to svn would not help users is this: it would take much
less effort to fix any problems in git than to backport features to svn.

svn is not being "actively developed by several people". Reimar is the
only developer who prefers the svn repo and can be said to be actively
working on code. Carl has done some smaller stuff.

How do you define "the official"? Anyway that's not very relevant to the
original subject; people can use it regardless of whatever name you use
to refer to it.
