I jumped off perforce by using a git-perforce bridge for daily work.
This made me comfortable with git while not changing anything public. 
And I had the certainty that if anything goes wrong, I can do it in 
perforce. Meanwhile we migrated a 2GB trunk sources repo from a legacy 
repo to git and it works fine. So don't hesitate do use a git-svn 

git will open new modes of operation, e.g. instead of up- and 
downloading patches in jira just hold a branch for any patch in a repo, 
which is as public as jira, batch-upgrade that branches/patches to 
trunk and pull that branches into the core developers repo as desired.
