other aspects that havent been covered so far: - we need mirrors to distribute the load, and people willing to create rsync mirrors are much easier than git - along those lines, simplicity ... very easy to bring up a rsync mirror, and the people maintaining our mirrors are familiar with it - load on the system is higher with git than rsync (at least cpu wise), thus we need beefier machines to handle the same # of clients -mike
