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.
