It's been discussed many times on this list and others.  Search the archives.  The main problems is that no one can agree on which version control system to switch to. Both Git and Mercurial have strong proponents. Bazaar and Subversion have proponents as well.

A related problem has been that until recently Koji supported only CVS.  I've seen recent work on Koji to support Git and SVN but that code isn't running on the production buildsystems AFAIK.  I haven't seen any work on Plague yet (Plague will be needed until Koji is ready to build packages for EPEL).
