It does not require HTTP access to SVN, as it looks directly at the
SVN repo on the local disk.

It also probably doesn't use the old SVN repo for anything in reality,
as there's a simple Git plugin installed that just grabs the Git history
to the timeline, and redirects source browsing etc to Github.
However, I don't know whether the timeline views etc continue to
function even without the local SVN repo, so I'd just disable the HTTP
access and leave the local repo as it is as a backup.
