git as an example of a distributed VCS. I wouldn't limit students to
git, if they want to use bzr, hg, etc or their own subversion server
that would be equally good as long as the student and the mentors are
able to use it. I just chose git because of its good integration with
svn and NicoP used it last year for his SoC work.

I agree with you, I wouldn't enforce it, just strongly recommend using a VCS.
