I can recommend it, too.

In some earlier mail I mentioned it would solve DoDi's problems with merging 
his branch with trunk after they have deviated much from each other.
Having your local git branch active, just run :

 $ git rebase master

(assuming master branch is trunk)

I just recently created a git branch from my old Lazarus Build Profiles patch.
It took some effort to solve all conflicts but now I am confident I can keep it 
in sync with trunk easily by running "git rebase master" once a week or so.
It is good in case the feature is accepted for Lazarus in future (during next 
5 year plan maybe).

Git seems to be a good tool for such things and it integrates well with SVN. 
Everybody should be happy. :-)
