Service disruption: git converter currently down

Good news all around, this should now be back in a fully working order.

Please note however, that more "garbage" metadata escaped from SVN into
github, meaning 3rd parties have a hard time re-running the conversion and
making sure that it matches SVN down to the metadata (i.e. timestamps).

Eventually, this will have to be re-rolled and a new "master" branch will
be force-pushed into github. There's no timeline for this yet.
