Has nothing to do with "afraid".

If you have gone through as many source repository changes as I have, you learn that it is never as easy as people think.
I'm not anti-GIT, I use it all the time. But the longer an organization uses a particular technology, the more embedded it becomes in the overall processes, so just converting the repos is the easiest part. Just keep in mind that there is more to it than that.
