You should see LinkedIn's "Git Community". There are folks whose main purpose in being there appears to be (to me anyway; they may disagree!) to spread a bit of FUD around. Nothing overt, but enough that someone who does not know git, reading some of those posts, will think twice about switching from their 1000-seat commercial license.

And yes, most of those guys have designations similar to the one we're talking about here. And they're from companies that have been around a few years and have (I imagine) a sizable chunk of CVCS using customers. (Curiously I never see a "developer" or "development manager" from those places. It's always a "marketing director" or "business development manager" or some such!)

At the moment only I and one other person seem to respond with any regularity. No idea if there just aren't enough neutral+clueful persons there or there are but they don't care or they don't see it as a problem.

Would be nice if any of you folks with linkedin accounts would join up, keep an eye on the traffic, and respond once in a while!
