Another major issue that David-Sarah and the rest of us have to decide
is whether to do the next release with both git and darcs in play or
cut over entirely to git (#1644).

I drew attention to this situation by forgetting that we were supposed
to push changes into trunk solely through darcs, and I committed some
patches to fix #1692 to my personal tahoe-lafs git repo on github:

https://github.com/zooko/tahoe-lafs/commit/19aaca73e6e751918ee8adfcbe973d500e95a539
https://github.com/zooko/tahoe-lafs/commit/3e0d6f9dcce8160acd4e76a3942781a4c6a65288
https://github.com/zooko/tahoe-lafs/commit/3c5c3c0282170e3ff247ea4dc8557d38e7ceb280
https://github.com/zooko/tahoe-lafs/commit/c87e4e048e2843618463588ccc14b232541dfa18

David-Sarah naturally didn't see this, so they went ahead and fixed
the same issue slightly differently:

https://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/changeset/5455/trunk

So this was duplicated effort, and it also means someone (me) has to
manually merge tahoe-lafs trunk with my tahoe-lafs repo if they (I)
don't want to throw away my changes.

I note that the "how_to_make_a_tahoe-lafs_release.org" file, which was
last touched by Brian while he was Release Manager for 1.9.0 and
1.9.1, now specifies to get all of the source code exclusively from
git and not use darcs:

https://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/browser/trunk/docs/how_to_make_a_tahoe-lafs_release.org

(That doesn't mean that we have to stop using darcs to *commit* patches.)
