First, I'm not a gajim developer, I just poke to code that runs on my
machine from time to time, so my preferences have really low importance.

I agree that DVCS is better. However, I prefer git (first, it seems to
have faster response, second, I know it much better). I guess git is
more familiar to much more developers than hg. Psi used darcs for a
while and they found out it is a problem to some of the potential
developers. But as I say, I'm not a developer of gajim, so do not take
this as a vote, please.

With regards

How many Lisp programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
