Nothing is stopping any Ubuntu Developer (even those who work for
Canonical) from building things with GIT or Mercurial if they like.  I
take the fact that none of them are doing it as a sign that none of them
actually want it.

(Neither is anything stopping anyone outside the current community from
 joining the community *by* doing that work either.)

Indeed, the overwhelming feeling towards GIT I get from #ubuntu-devel is
one of dislike rather than love.

If I'm wrong, and there's a hoard of developers aching to use GIT
instead of bzr, then vote with your code editor! :-)
