Emacs moved I think a while ago to bzr.

I like git a lot and use it but quite frankly, all the attitude that
git users ooze is nauseating at times. Linus' Google talk was pretty
much a rant. It can put people off even if git's otherwise awesome.

Some of the other projects that I read about (I forget which) that
didn't chose git was due to it's limitations on windows. I don't know
if that still holds though.
