I'm +0. Do we have an idea of how we want to make the move? Do you anticipate
wanting to move tags, branches, etc. over as well? (My understanding when
I looked was taht this makes things... hard.) 

I don't have any idea how to manage branching for releases and the like
in github; do others have an idea of how these kinds of things are supposed
to work? 

I'm worried about release engineering approaches; other than that, I have
no major concerns, and I'm sure that others can help me understand how 
these things are supposed to work and how they will be reflected in the 
SVN repository from the Git repository.
