Thanks Kevin, you seem to have similar sentiments like I.
I strongly feel that the transition should be a planned process
so that we can be sure that all pieces are in place when we finally
migrate the bulk of the work.
As I said already I would like to volunteer to help out here.
I've got a fairly good knowledge of CVS and I'm interested to 
learn my ways around a new SCM.

Keith has already demonstrated that the largest piece of code that
has problably seen the most commits since the X.Org tarball came into
existance can successfully be 'GITified'. 
I have no other data than that - but this seems to be rather encouraging.
