        Because they've been using it since before git existed and properly migrating a huge, decades-old SVN repository is a lot of work.

            They just don't git it.

              How much RAM did they need to migrate from svn to git?

                Not everyone has a quad-socket ThreadRipper Pro to migrate the repository with reposurgeon.

                    For very small teams svnserve is fairly convenient. Being able to spin up a simple repo server is easier than sharing directories / keys over ssh or setting up a large gitlab instance.

                    Subversion also has a user management system by default, without needing ad-hoc hooks. For example in Git you can impersonate other users quite easily.
                    i.e https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...f-another-user

                    That said, I am fairly sure a "gitserve" would not be too hard to implement if enough people valued these features. It seems there isn't enough demand.
