In the opensuse-packaging ML
Peter Poeml encouraged people to try to hack BuildService so it would
use git as its source server.

Uh huh, good luck with that one. I fear that Peter doesn't really have
an overview over what needs to be done to switch to git.

Vivid advantages of the git approach are:
- standard VCS operations like diff, log or commit are offline - this
decreases the server load and one could work without the network

That's just delaying the commit until you do a 'git push'. Plus, you
don't really want to have just one git repository for the build
service - 'git pull' always pulls the complete repository, this
would mean having a local copy of *all* sources.
Having a repository for each project is maybe also not enough
because of projects like "openSUSE:Factory".

Another big problem where I don't know how they could be implemented
with git are source links.
