 doing something because everybody is doing so is not the best argument 

 I would say that using git would improve quite a few things:

 * it would be easier to send upstream patches
 * having a good git web interface like gitlab or github would allow 
 newcomers to participate more easily
 * it would make life easier to the core contributors that prefer to 
 work with git because git allows a very powerful development workflow 
 compared to SVN
