Just having to use git to package software would prevent users from
contribute to openSUSE.

You're getting side tracked. The main point was to reuse an existing
DVCS as the base, instead of adding feature upon feature to osc itself,
thereby creating yet another inferior SCM solution. (With commands
different from any of the existing ones, creating an entry barrier.)

git or hg are simply probably the most widely known choices.

Lars
