[Jersey] Re: SVN, GIT or MERCURIAL for Jersey 2.0?

SVN is the most commonly used version control still, and it is currently
used in the project without a real need to change. So there should be
good reasons to change. The sole reason I understand from the original
posting is the wish for distribution. SVK provides exactly this. It is
an extension to SVN that adds distribution. So it is the most obvious
choice, since it keeps SVN but just adds the wanted functionality. The
learning curve is a joke as it just adds very few commands ontop of SVN.
GIT and HG enforce everybody to change to GIT or HG, even those pretty
happy with SVN. I do not see why everybody should learn GIT or HG if the
same could be done easily with a simple SVN extension.

I think team is trying to choose from the obvious candidates, ones
that are most used.
So perhaps you could expand on why SVK should be considered over more
well-known choices?
