[Bf-committers] Migration to git and upgrade projects website

At the moment we're looking to only convert branches that have been
merged into trunk (so trunk has valid history).

Other branches wont be lost and the subversion repository wont be
deleted, but there are so many branches which were never merged it
adds a lot of overhead to making a full checkout - (a git clone would
download every GSOC branch that was ever made for example).

See details here:

We could do a git conversion that includes all branches (for
posterity), but not work from it. - but in that case not sure theres
much advantage - can also just use the existing SVN repo.
