>From my own user perspective this doesn't matters that much. If you're
an user and you're trying new things you may need to download projects
not hosted in fdo.org, ej: kernel snapshots when dealing with drm or a
metacity version featuring some new feature. And from a user perspective
using several SCMs is not an issue at all, since you just do "cvs update",
"git pull", "svn whatever" or switch branches if anything. Also, for a 
user the code is read-only, so it's possible to use git -> cvs gateways
if using several SCMs gets to be a problem.
