By getting involved in FOP development you accept the project’s
practices... including a VCS you may not like :-)

Or, if you feel strongly enough about it, you can promote a switch to
Git, now that it’s officially supported by Apache.

That said, have you tried playing with git svn?

FWIW, I have a Git repo that sits on top of the svn checkout and, after
ironing out some wrinkles, I find that the process works just fine.
