I'm on the "i don't want to think to much about it" or "lazy bastard"  ide. For example, one of my main reasons for darcs is it's nice  
cherry-picking interface that is the _default_ way of handling it.  
Sure, i could use git cherry-pick and friends, but Darcs gives me the  ollection of features I really like at my fingertips.
Also, I tend not to play with branches too much, but only push the  
patches I really want back to upstream/trunk. Thats the default way in  arcs.
Sure, I could push git into my workflow, but that would mean I would  
have to costumize git everytime I change computers. It does a lot, but  nly need half of it and it always takes me time to figure out which  alf I wanted to use.

Also, if you allow both workflows, which link will you put on your  
website? ;)

As I said before: your mileage may vary. I don't like git that much  
and I also have a problem with hypes. So I would tend to wait until  
the "revolution" is over.
But I support the democratic process ;).

Florian
