Default Using Git to maintain many small packages in a team?

Hi,

In the pkg-ruby-extras team, we are considering switching from
svn-buildpackage to git.

Does someone has feedback on this switch, in the context of teams
maintaining many small packages?

Specifically, I'm looking for a way to easy track all of the team's
repositories, update them all, etc. It seems that the Debian Games team
uses mr (according to http://wiki.debian.org/Games/VCS). Are there
alternatives worth considering?

- Lucas

We did that a few years back in the OCaml team, and it worked pretty
well. We sucessfully converted (almost) all of our
svn-buildpackage-managed packages to git (using git-buildpackage) [1].

We are also using mr, plus a script to generate an mrconfig for the team
[2].

Perl team used to use only Subversion. Now, git can also be used
but, according to the webpage [1], it is not as well integrated as
subversion repos in team-wide tools.
