I'm not sure I fully agree with this.  The single point of failure exists in 
any system where w have an authoritative repository.  We could have an official 
git-svn mirror somewhere, or even a svn mirror using svncync that became the 
authoritative one when GNA was down if the only issue is being able to get at 
the code when gna is down.
If it is indeed possible to have a svn mirror with that tool and have it become authoritative with savannah goes town and get GNA up (or the other way) it would be enough and would allow us to work with SVN. Apparently, the only reason to switch to a DCVS is to get away with the failure of the server which our free hostings incur about once a year... For the rest, SVN with a flat structure would be more than adequate and provides us a portable, proven, maintained and well-known tool.
