"Safer" ? ... nah. Nothing is getting broken.

Could an svn commit arrive, while a contributor is working through the
conversion process, and verifying its result? Sure. But they can' just
re-run their conversion.

And yes: the intent is that a PMC/community uses a "temporary local git
repo". Running through conversion tests on the live new/empty Git repo is
just... nonsensical.

Your thoughts on wording is most welcome. This is kind of a big change
around what Infra will help people with on svn->git. A good description of
the new position would be welcome!
