was going to be that all git commits were still going to be pushed into SVN
as the "authoritative" backend.  Is that the case, or will there be
"authoritative" git repos?

2 - I had starting working on scripts to convert our read-only git access
into svnpubsub-based git syncing, and when I had that ready, I was going to
use it to try to get GitHub permission for us to push our git repos to them
