I'll repeat my previous point from several past discussions: please, no 
conversions of the huge tree with lots of independent projects in it, the 
aim should be for each project to control its own repository (including 
its own choice of version control system) independently.  That too many 
independent projects are shoehorned into one repository is one of the 
major problems with the present setup.  
<> (and subsequent 
discussion in that thread) has my most recent version of what I think 
separate repositories might look like - each project should lead its own 
conversion as and when it wishes to move out.
