What are your parameters? I've started working on the scripts this
weekend, and unfortunately for me, I am bursting with ideas of things
to try out - this is going to be helpful for the future, but not so
good for the present. I am planning on working on it an hour every day,
so I should have branching hopefully done soon, and then at least
pre-release creation done right after that.

To explain a bit the delay, the switch to git is more than just
changing some configuration-management commands in the script.
Git opens up the door for doing things a little differently.
For instance, I will have the scripts sends the email for me,
instead of me doing some tedious copy/pasting - this is now possible
because I don't have to be afraid of losing the connection to
sourceware while creating the branch from a repo on my laptop.
Same thing for GPG signing.

If the delay is unbearable to your platform, then we'll need to
temporary re-open the CVS, and produce an extra release from there.
Or the alternative is to produce a release by hand, but that would
take much more time, I think. Neither of these 2 options are
attractive, so it'd be better if we could wait for me to be ready.
