As we discussed on IRC, my suggestion is the following:
Let's get the conversion working, but without allowing patches in Gerrit.

This allows us to do the migration in a somewhat slower pace, updating
e.g. the nightly generation and making it easier to check if the conversion
works as expected. This also makes it easier to get feedback on the conversion,
As a timeline, I would suggest to have continuous updates from svn to
git, roughly weekly updates
to the conversion code and a transition period of maybe 6 weeks,
starting next friday? I think it
is realistic as a time frame to update most things that depend on svn.

separate trunk and rewrite, and to rename them to something like 'compat' and
'core'. After discussing it with you and translatewiki people, I think
having i18n as
submodule is the easiest option.
I think we should not have the same method with external libraries

svn:external'ed in. I'd be more interested in including a pip-style
requirements.txt, with an optional 'external libraries' zip package.
