Not me, but thought I'd take the opportunity to ask if switching to git is
(still) an absolute no. As far as I can see, hg has mostly downsides, with
needing a conduit between it and upstream for example that I saw Linus
complain about recently.
I'm used to git by now, and every time I try do something inside ALSA I just
keep on typing the wrong commands to hg, needing the manpage, not being
certain that I'm not fucking up my local tree...
I can definitely say that hg is not being instrumental in making me more of
a contributor. When I _do_ do something I tend to just work against the
kernel inside git and then only in the end apply the result to the current
hg just to see if it will.
I believe the git submodule stuff would also nicely allow all of ALSA to be
one giant repo basically, with kernel, lib, ..., as submodules.
