To be frank, that attitude is just as short-sighted and destructive
to the open source community as is Lennart's crusade in Linux-land
to force everyone on the planet onto his systemd via redhat's giant
hand of influence. (They've been trying to tie projects like GNOME onto
systemd as a hard dependency -- systemd will only ever run on Linux
which means this would limit people's choices.)

There are different projects that fulfill different needs, and we
should strive to keep them alive for as long as they serve a useful
purpose to their users. Users should freely be able choose between
tools and benefit from improvements made to each tool.

In the grand scheme of things, the development of git is entirely
orthogonal to the development of Subversion. They're different tools
made for different requirements.
