No, there is a discussion on the main context mailing list and I don't want to discuss this with a broad audience.

I don't want to answer the question before knowing the exact question.

Me, too. I use git for almost everything, but it could be that an automatic svn repository via webdav could suffice. That way the users don't have to do anything at all, no installation of a SCM, no commands to learn, etc.

As far as I understand the "problem": we need version controlled modules. Why? Who would go back in time? The module authors? Other users? The minimals-distribution-Mojca? 

What interface do these people need? How often do they need access to the SCM? Should we get rid of the files on the modules section?

Lot's of questions, and I don't know the answer.

No, just a bit upset. But I'll calm down.
