Me too.

What prevents us from moving to git currently? I can migrate swscale to
ffmpeg quite easly if that was the problem, the recipe is simple:

import mplayer to git, import ffmpeg to git.

in mplayer make a branch and remove everything that isn't libswscale,
prune to clean up and commit this change.

in ffmpeg make a branch and git pull the libswscale-only branch from the
mplayer repo.

Commit the change.

That's all, the story is preserved and ffmpeg has a coherent tree.

We don't need to setup anything, every local git repo is fine as is, we
just decide have to push the changes to the public repo once we are done
^^. And yes, we can just add the additional step of git-svn/git-svndump
in case we want to do that before the transition.
