As you can see Reimar still wants to keep doing development in svn the
same way as before, so the svn repo will probably exist at least for
some time. However the git repo already has significant advantages for
some fairly large groups of people:
      * those who have a multicore CPU and want to take advantage of it
        for decoding (easy to use support for threaded decoding with
      * those who use VDPAU (improved VO with more features, better
        performance especially when using hardware decoding with
        deinterlacing, and less bugs)
      * those who play files with SSA/ASS subtitles (svn uses an
        outdated embedded copy of libass, while git uses an up-to-date
        version of the library; the newer version can handle more
        features and has better vsfilter compatibility)
      * those who play Matroska files with ordered chapters (ordered
        chapters work in git, are not supported at all in svn)
and there are quite a lot of other changes. Most of the features will
likely never appear in svn.
