We need to get the python.org admins involved in the process at this  
point.  I'm pretty sure that Thomas runs the Bazaar sync operations on  
one of his machines and pushes to code.python.org.  I don't know if  
that's an option for you and/or whether we should bring this in- 
house.  I do remember that at the time, there were issues with bzr-svn  
requiring svn 1.5, which hadn't been released yet.  Now that that's  
out, and there is a more stable generic fast-import process, perhaps  
bringing the sync operations in will be easier.  Unfortunately I will  
have no cycles for this in the next several weeks.

When we put up the experimental bzr repos, we generalized the scripts  
we use to set up access control based on ssh.  It would be a good  
thing if we can use the same arrangement to control access to git and
