 So if people want to use git to collaborate, they can clone that repository and create branches

anyone can currently use that by setting up a git-svn bridge.  I'm not sure we gain anything
except headaches by migrating the entire repo.
I don't agree with that! I've used the git mirror and it's a real hassle 
because then you have to jump back to svn to commit. God forbid there is 
a binary file to deal with, or moves or renames. I've done it and I 
always give it up after a while - it's too annoying. And I don't trust 
the git-svn bridge stuff - it's always got some limitations or gotchyas, 
and I just don't trust it for anything but the simplest stuff.

I've seen large svn repos moved to git, and the process seems pretty 

So I think the headache situation is the reverse :)
