Ok, I believe http://drupal.org/node/289117 now reflects most of what 
was covered in this thread:

* Pros and cons of Subversion
* Pros and cons of DVCS (needs work)
* Note that SVN is likely the best choice.
* Fleshed out "How you can help"
* Changed the FAQ to "Why is Drupal still using CVS and how can I help 
change that?" to appease Moshe. :D

I'm sure I'm missing stuff. Please help. The revisions tab is lonely. ;)
