Gnome Git has increasingly become the standard distributed source code management tool for free and open source software projects with the likes of Xorg, Samba, WINE, Perl and Ruby on Rails using it already. GNOME has now joined the Git bandwagon. A survey among GNOME contributors showed Git to be by far the most popular choice. Developers Behdad Esfahbod, Kristian Høgsberg, Owen Taylor, and Federico MenaQuintero and a number of volunteers formed a team and have helped migrate all the GNOME projects to Git. They have published the details of the migration.

ESPECIALLY for open source projects, it makes no sense to use svn anymore. The question nowadays for what to use for SCM shouldn't be svn or a DCVS, it should be mercurial or git.

As linus said in his famous talk, if you dont like git you are ugly and stupid.
