As one of my colleagues puts it, "Subversion has excellent branching
support, but it sucks at merging". Of course, you usually want to
merge a branch back in at some point.
We've encountered various problems such as changing a file to a
symlink that have made us generally wary of Subversion. Admittedly,
I've happily used it in other environments and encountered fewer
problems due to simpler working practices.
I deliberately mentioned distributed version controls generally rather
than git specifically, as we like monotonic revision numbers, which
git does not support.
