The so-called "Better-SCM" site was started by me, and the way I maintain its
comparison ( http://better-scm.berlios.de/comparison/ ) is that a person who is
an expert in one or more version control systems volunteers to add an initial
patch to the comparison that adds a new system, and also to be a contact for
that version control system when new criteria are added in order to fill the
details. As I have about 30 VCSes there, I am not going to do all the research
on my own for all of them (most of them I have never used or am an expert of)
but rather make sure the maintainers each maintain their own part of the

Git would not be an exception to that, so I'm seeking for someone who is an
authority on git, who can act as the maintainer for it on
better-scm.berlios.de , and I am unable to reach anyone because the main git
mailing lists are hosted on the kernel.org domain from which I am banned.
