The fight is over. Neither Jekyll nor Octopress were victorious. I've landed on something entirely different to power srcmvn.com. It is named Sculpin.
Sculpin is my creation. I've been working on it since the end of 2011 and am very excited to have been able to convert my Octopress site over to the new system.
It still has a very long road ahead of it but it is already powering a couple of sites. This site can now be added to the list.
