For what is worth, I am in favor of switching to git, as I am already using
git-svn locally, with regular dcommit's.
What was done in the pkg-kde team was (AFAIK) a progressive migration in the
"who wants to migrate his package can do so" style, with a documented
process (namespaces, content of the leftover README in the svn, …). And it
worked pretty well. With enough mind's flexibility, it's totally workeable.
(But in the end I don't really care what the VCS is [as long as there's a
git-$foo tool available :-p ]).
