I won't be blocking this but I'm a bit skeptical. Every year there seems
to be a new revision control system trend that we need to convert
everything to. Arch, Bazaar, Git, what will we be converting to new next
year? Meanwhile I have not encountered any serious problem with operating
on the pkg-php repository as-is so I'm not sure what the goal is.

One thing that annoys me with git is that I get sent (e.g. in the security
team) git-bundles or links to repositories that just plain crash when
unpacking on stable. Git seems to work when everyone works with the latest
sid tools, but if you don't...?
