Now the release is out, it's time for the real migration. There's
things to do then, and perhaps a few we still need to agree on.

@Jiří: Would you mind doing the real export since you know have a little
@all: We will switch to Git, and we need to choose basically between
GitHub and Gitorious.
I'd vote for trying GitHub, just because it has one thing I quite liked
and that Gitorious don't seem to have: comments on a particular commit's
line. I did use it a few times with Matthew, and I felt it quite
convenient to comment details 
Apart that I don't mind, both have the necessary stuff, and Gitorious is
more "free as in freedom".
Also, I think that we should at least try Vincent Driessen's branching
model  (e.g. develop branch + feature branches + release branches).
It might looks a bit containing at first glance, but also makes things
clean -- but note I never tried it in a real project, maybe I'm wrong.
Finally, we'll need to "all" (at least committers -- Nick, Enrico, Frank
and I --, Enrico and I) work a bit together to do the switch:
* committers needs to stop committing to SVN when export to Git starts
* somebody (Jiří?) needs to export the SVN repo
* somebody (me I think) need to setup an "upstream" repo on
* we'll have to update everything that assume we commit to SF's SVN
(some mirroring, commit ML, etc). Enrico, I guess we'll need you at
least to help here still a bit, sorry ^^
So, we'll need to work together soon, and that'll need us to coordinate
ourselves. So Jiří (if you accept re-exporting), Enrico, Nick and
Frank: when can we do the actual switch? I can have the time whenever I
want this week, I just need to know ;)
It would be good if all this could be done as soon as possible so we can
start development again using this new scheme. Sooner's better.
 I don't suggest to move all discussion outside the ML, far from me
