A little bit earlier than a week (sorry if I'm too fast ;) ), I
finally converted[1] our repository to git[2]

[1] http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git#ConvertaSVNAliothrepositorytoGit
[2] git+ssh://git.debian.org/git/reportbug/reportbug.git

Please use this know, since I'll be asking for SVN removal as soon as
possible (for example, once I upload 4.0 to sid, that's really soon
now, and teh conversion was blocking it).
