A zipped up repository (assuming it's in fsfs format, not bdb) is just
as easy for us to work with as a dumpfile, just means there's one more
step for the infra person doing the job (usually me).

The other thing we need is a list of the committers who have committed
to the repos in question and the mapping from their old username to
their ASF username so we can convert the old svn:author revprops to
match the new ASF usernames, for consistency.

Once both of those are available, and all the paperwork (CLAs,
software grants, etc) are sent in and acknowledged by the ASF
secretary just file an INFRA Jira ticket to schedule things and we'll
get it moving.
