Hi Werner,

Actually there are strong reasons to use git, not just that it might be
"en-vouge" and its possible to read in all the previously known tags and
branches in svn or cvs into a new git repository, but finally its your

On the other hand, It might be a problem that you don't have a distributed
model, as you should have, having the GnuPG Project in the open source domain,
though I think, I understand your reasons.

It would finally be quite helpfull if you would put the references of all basic
svn paths on a central place on gnupg.org, as I failed to find the libassuan one
for example and I don't think there is a way to access them, without knowing
their names (libassuan might have been called Assuan or just assuan, as it was
as the internal path of gpgme).

But with I now found that version on your server and I'm happy with it, for now.
