I have made tarballs available on:
http://people.debian.org/~fjp/webwml/

See the text at the bottom of that page for further information.

No. I think this is a latent wish that a lot of people have. The main 
blocker is probably that it is a _lot_ of work:
- convert the CVS repo to SVN (probably the easy part)
- convert any scripts that check/update versions
- convert the build infrastructure
- convert the scripts that produce translation statistics
- make sure that commit messages and emails are still sent to interested
  parties
- minimize the time no updates are possible due to the conversion
- whatever I've forgotten

So all it needs is a dedicated volunteer who has loads of spare time, is 
willing to make a conversion plan and work with the various people 
involved.

Cheers,
FJP
