That offer is still open. (Though I would appreciate ongoing development

I don't see a need to horse around with Git either :-) It's currently in

Subversion repository to a ‘fastimport’ stream? Maybe someone with
experience on that site can help us.

Thanks for the responsible move to seek adoption for these projects.
