I feel like my questions are being ignored.... If you don't know the answer to any (such as the first question), just say so? Or split the topic if you are afraid of it "going out of topic" - although my questions are in response to Trojal's post on the topic.
As for SVN copy, I understand GIT has a good number of advantages of using; and I agree with the use of it. However, there are also advantages of having an SVN copy for just the master branch as well.
SVN has a linear advancement, unlike GIT, allowing for players to easily say which revision they have when reporting. Or even when someone releases a free download, they can say it works for "r15000+". It also allows bug reports to have a sort of "start" point.
Maintaining should be easy with scheduling jobs to pull and git svn it to an SVN copy
Seeing how GIT handles its branching business without recopying the files, unlike SVN, is one of its advantages. However, seeing as I am only asking for the master branch to be copied into SVN (no other branches) there is no extra overhead to worry about for creating branches and such in the main repos.
For the plugin feature, I know that code would be a problem, that's why I said it was wishful thinking lol
