At the same time that the Calligra project is created, we will move from Subversion to Git, making it an even better platform for innovation in the free office space.

I don't understand this part, how does this change of version control system make Calligra "an even better platform for innovation in the free office space" ?

Git is better at multiple branches, which helps when you have many developers each working on their "own thing".
