Can you say that? I think that the main Boosters were busy moving to
Git. That took a long time and from my perspective, they did a good job
given what they were aiming for. I disagree with the whole modular Boost
thing, but it will probably take a couple of years and some releases
before we can say that it was worth it. Has there even been a git-only
release yet? I don't think so.

Too bad I won't be there to attend this funeral! Would have liked to
hear your points.
