Be looking forward to this email.  My main questions have to do with
the probable timing of the switch and whether it will be a sudden cold
turkey event or whether svn and git will be able to coincide for some nominal
migration period.

At some appropriate point, I'd like to see an advance announcement that says something

You have until <some_reasonable_date_time> to commit your final changes to svn;
after that you'll need to use git.

I'd think that one to two weeks might be an appropriate warning period. Particularly
if folks know beforehand that it's coming.

Thanks, again, to all working on this issue for your (in the plural sense) efforts toward
modernizing MacPorts.
