sources.gentoo.org is a much worse (and slower) solution than cvs log.
The main advantage of a ChangeLog (and of git) is that it allows you
to check the history locally, without needing access to the network.

The current situation is:
(a) Not dire.
(b) Not urgent.
And if we decide, hey, let's move to git instead of having this
discussion, the current situation is also:
(c) A waste of everyone's time.
So no, future plans are not independent of the current situation, and
a move to git *is* a way to deal with the current situation.
In effect, we kill (at least) two birds with one stone and prevent a
lot of argument and bad blood.
