For a small project with few contributors you don't care much about 
switching from something that works for you since you don't have much to 
gain. git is great when you have to manage lots of patches from a good 
number of people or if you are used to prepare your patchset locally and 
then push once you are happy with it. cvs (and the rest) is simply 
lacking those features (and niceties like git grep or git add -i).

So for all the project I start I use git because I like the features it 
provides beside being a good dvcs, for the project I use to contribute 
often I keep my work in git since it is easier for me to track it this way.
