In our case using a dump file may be easier, because our svn repository
wasn't properly setup: a unique repository for several projects, and no
branches / tags / trunk / releases directories. So I will have to use svn
admin tools on a dump file to get a clean repository with standard
directories. So if a dumpfile is as easy to use for you as a zipped
repository, I think I will send a dumpfile.

OK, I'll send this list too when we'll be ready.

How can I know that the paperwork is ok? I've already sent my ICLA and the
software grant, but I don't know if they were properly received and
