Subversion is nice for the central repository and the wider support.   
I think that makes it the ideal pick for Ruby's main repository.

Luckily, that doesn't hinder us git fans.  You can just pull the  
central git repository down with git-svn (which ships with git) and  
you get all the advantages of git locally.

It's the best of both worlds.
