I'm working on a basic plan, and I've been talking to Robin (and whoever 
else happens to be on #gentoo-dev at the time) about it.

There's 4 main pieces that I can think of offhand:

1. Getting a reasonable backend setup that is performant for initial
   checkout, updates, and checkins;
2. Figuring out a workflow that makes the most sense, even if it's the
   same one we already have;
3. Updating utilities, mainly repoman on the dev side, and rsync scripts
   on the backend; and
4. A plan for the actual migration.

Here's progress so far:

1. Working on it
2. Draft at <>. Thoughts?
3. Should be fairly straightforward. Patches welcome!
4. Could use some discussion. For example, do we provide 
   backwards-compat CVS for a while, or do we just provide a git testing 
   server for a while and switch things over all at once?
