I happen to agree with Dave.
Is it possible to have a proposal to this effect put before the steering committee and have it voted on? The distinctions between whether it is allowed in general vs only during the 'git transition' and how long that transition lasts should be considered.
I'm willing to help with the details of the proposal, but I don't really know the process.
