That part is simple.  The Git plugin is already installed in Jenkins.
Here's a build using Git that happened 50 minutes ago:

I'll be more than happy to help that happen after the move--via a pull
request no less :).  If someone wants to volunteer before the move,
that's awesome too.  It should just be a matter of tweaking the
environment variables to point to a new directory or checking out from

they can pull the records from SVN as to who's allowed to commit.
