I have heard this for about a year and presumable it has gone down  
over the year so I am curious what percentage of developers use Git or  
more importantly don't know git today.  Both Nokia and TorchMobile use  
Git completely.  Gnome has switch to Git earlier this year so  
presumably the Gtk developers know Git (correct me if I am wrong).   
Can someone from Apple and Google comment on how much Git usage you  
guys have?  I am curious how close (or far away) we are to a tipping  
point where most of the devs know or are familiar with Git.
