If by "never seen any" you mean that you don't know of any cases wher
they're used: Wine and the Linux kernel are both alleged to use git
(Wine having been converted from CVS within just the last few months,
and still accessible via CVS). I've never previously heard of mercurial
that I recall, either, myself.

side of it.
