Like Python, Gnome was/is using SVN and tested (at least) GIT, bzr, and
hg mirrors, starting somewhat earlier than Python, for DVCS migration.
As announced in January, the majority of *their* developers preferred
GIT. They started conversion then, in January, and made a progress
announcement on March 19 (not yesterday).
I fail to see any joke. Different people have different tool preferences.
