I'm ok with it, but I can also live with svn.

If we move we need to discuss the repo structure. Should we put the
whole svn into a single git repo (I think no) or create a git repo per
subproject (yes IMHO)? We have many subprojects now (shared/api,
mavibot, jdbm, server, studio, escimo) which deserve its own git repo.
What about the smaller repos (parent-project, buildtools (is this still
required?) clients). I think sandbox and deceased don't need to be
migrated, as SVN will still be available read-only.

I have a small concern regarding the studio repo, as it includes
binaries from various Eclipse versions, the .git directory of the
current git-mirror is 700 MB. That means when cloning the studio git
repo on has to download the full 700 MB.

Other things to consider (not a complete list)
* Is there a mailing list integration for commits
* Maven release should work with git, update of <scm> section in POMs is
* Is there are a git alternative to viewvc, or just use github instead?

Kind Regards,
