I oppose the Idea of moving our software to a commercial platform
(github) but I agree to the rest of your post.

I always have a somewhat uncertain feeling about horribly breaking
something when doing direct commits to osm2pgsql, as I know that
there are people using its single existing trunk version for
production systems.

IMO the real problem is not about tools (git vs. svn) but rather about
a missing concept of how the software is maintained.

Git tends to enforce policy in our context only because we don't have software
maintenance at all.
