As far as the conversion is concerned, things should be OK.

The bugs in svn-all-fast-export have been fixed in the meantime, and we 
have scripts for comparing checksums for each revision. It's hardly 
possible to lose anything.

I can upload a "final" repository today/tomorrow. If it seems OK, we can 
freeze SVN trunk a few days after that.

Or we can freeze the trunk sooner than that after the "final" repo is up, 
and patch up things manually, if something turns up (unlikely).
