Looks fine by me, and the sooner, the better (or so I want to think :P).

In December, I think the consensus was to move to Gerrit  -
basically with the goal to keep it as close as possible to mediawiki,
hopefully also easing contributions (to mw for pwb developers and vice
versa). I have put some initial work into the migration (see
), but I have not had the time to
smooth out the wrinkles.
Will you be at the Hackathon next week? I think this would be a good
topic to discuss there.

The time has finally come upon us--I'm finally moving forward with shutting
down SVN and making it a read-only service. As Pywikipedia is the only
consumer of SVN anymore, I wanted to reach out to the community to find
out what everyone wants to do. As I see it, there's three courses of action
that Pywikipedia can go in:
1) Move to Gerrit
2) Move to Git elsewhere (Github, Google Code, etc)
3) Move to some other SVN service
I'm more than willing to help with any of these choices--the first two would
involve a conversion of the history to Git, along with importing it to the
destination of choice. Staying with SVN is also potentially possible, I'm
more than happy to provide full SVN dumps if someone's wanting to setup
that service elsewhere.
What are people's thoughts? I've not come up with a firm date yet, but
coming to consensus sooner rather than later would be nice.
So, this can be done easily, I'm just wondering when we should go
ahead with things? It'll only take a few hours, so it's just a matter
of picking a date that people are ok with.
Also, if anyone has anything they want to add to the page on mw.org
I'd welcome the input.
