Personally, I use convert, because it's more robust on WIndows (there
were a few commits with case clashes which hgsvn can't get past on a
Windows box).

For a central repo, I don't care - but I'd prefer it if all the
options were hosted on code.python.org, just so that no one option
feels more "official" than any other. If I do the work, I'd use
convert, simply because I'm more familiar with it, but that's all.
OTOH, if the process is just copying a local mirror up to the server,
copying your repo might be better (my PC is not always on, and I don't
have frequent syncs set up at the moment).
