Please don't forget that these still qualify as exotic and rarely used

fault to switch to using something "exotic".
I sure beg to differ. Open your eyes - all of X.org, mesa, the kernel, cairo, hal is developed in git.

And almost the rest of the world uses CVS and svn, even
sources.redhat.com still uses CVS ... GCC uses a monsterous svn.

My point was that git certainly isn't the exotic curiosity you try to paint it as. It's way beyond critical mass and I'd wager at least as stable as CVS at this point. Another point is that these projects likely care more about VCS than your average sourceforge project does, and as such have made much more informed decisions about this than the many projects out there that have just gone with the default lowest common denominator.

Does sourceforge support git?

Is sourceforge useful?
