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

Hi Chad,

In December, I think the consensus was to move to Gerrit [1] -
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
https://github.com/pywikibot/svn2git ), 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.

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.
