This was talked about in
http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2007/04/msg00150.html; it seemed to
me that the consensus was SVN, but whatever way we decide to go,
someone needs to fix the tools to do it before switching becomes a
viable option.
Actually converting the repository is fairly trivial in comparison.
