I don't think there was anything to be resolved, just it needed someone
to work on it.

I don't agree with this view. I saw that the Git repository of the team
has been *deactivated* by one of the PMT admins on Alioth. :(

Yes, there is resistance.

I would like to start uploading my modules in the Git of Alioth of the
team, regardless if there is still some old SVN repositories or not (and
this, because it's taking too much time until anyone does something,
though we've got some stuff to do...).

Though I don't have the admin rights on the PMT team to reactivate the
Git repo. Seeing that lots of people are using collab-maint instead of
the team VCS because SVN sux shows there's really a problem here, and
that we really need to accept Git repositories, even if old ones haven't
migrated (yet). Saying that we only want a single VCS type is already an
obsolete statement, as that's not the case anymore anyway if we consider
those in collab-maint.
