Where in Fedora's package development would you see niches to apply
these aspects? I don't see any.

Finally, being a long term CVS user, would has very mixed experiences
wrt. SVN, and who has recently been confronted with both git and
mercurial, I can't deny finding both git and hg as not to be suitable
for centralized development. They don't really buy much.
