Again: It is way more effort to extend git/svn/.. to our needs than to add merge handling to osc. We would not have anything this year with this approach.
Yes, we lack merge handling atm. But when we had no time for this it does not help to start an approach which would take way more time.
That's something I just don't believe.
Look at _link: it's a hack implementing something which could easily be implemented as well (and probably more completely) using chained repos with hg/git (or any other distributed versioning system), which would help trace merges etc.
Yes, for _every single feature_, it's easier to add the feature to osc instead of switching to a "known" and complete DVCS. But if you look at the whole picture, I'd bet it doesn't hold.
