With the Inkscape 0.47 release out, and following a rather lengthy series of debates on git vs. bzr vs svn, we have switched to Bazaar. Thanks go to Ted Gould for doing all the heavy lifting in shifting things over (and winning many hearts and minds).
From the Inkscape 0.47 release manager just now:
<ScislaC> I LOVE bazaar! :D
Finally a vcs I can use via command line in a way that makes sense to me and I don’t feel like I’ll accidentally make a bad commit.
