[ECOS] DVCS choice

Switching to DVCS is the hard bit.

Whether to choose git or hg (I don't think there
are others in the running still) is only hard because
they are so similar.

If the "wrong" DVCS is chosen for eCos today, then
presumably switching will be much easier than the
switch from CVS to DVCS.

Here is a relatively famous web site:


I prefer git because I have to learn it anyway(Linux work)
and because I believe it has brighter future than hg.

Learning git PLUS hg is a steeper learning curve...
