I feel it a bit too far, but...

However, I think that for normal committers (you, Nick), there's not
much to do:

1) stop committing to SVN during the export;
2) create an account on the new hosting site if not already done;
3) tell the repo owner (me(?)) to grant you commit & stuff rights;
4) start committing using Git on new host.

Apart 1, you can even still commit during the process since Git is a
DVCS, only push would require steps 2 and 3.

I think this is pretty cheap and can probably be done in a couple of
minutes, plus maybe another couple of minutes to read/check the new
committing rules (e.g. push development commit to develop branch rather
than master, etc.).

The big part is the SVN export/import and porting of "commit hooks", not
sure if you have some?

I'm not saying you shouldn't participate (the more qualified volunteers
the better!), just that maybe if you haven't the time we can do by
ourselves ;)
