repository from SVN to GIT.

It is now available as

To make this conversion, I used the recipe described in
http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git, which worked really well. I have to
admit that I don't necessarily understand everything...but the job is
apparently done.

I would appreciate if you guys, particularly git wizards, can have a
look there.

directories to GIT. Of course, if some of us don't feel comfortable
with that, we can keep some packages in SVN : after all, it's not like
font packages are complicated stuff with branches, tags and merge
