"We" want, as nobody objected in the discussion and Matts description
of how to deal with GitHub PRs sounds very promising.

From my understanding, a logging PMC needs to create the GIT repo:

Additionally, the current SVN repo needs to be imported into a local
GIT repo and that import can than be pushed to the newly created at
Apache. Not sure where the SVN repo goes afterwards...

In some former Mail, Matt thankfully offered to do the repo creation
and GIT import, but at least the import is something I could have a
look at myself as well. Shouldn't make any difference who pushes the
history in the end.

As I didn't do such an import in the past yet, it might simply take
some time. But there seem to be some good examples out there:

I will (try to) look into the import itself at the weekend.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
