Is it feasible to keep the git repos current-ish with subversion?

FreshPorts has multiple instances of the website: dev, devgit, test, stage, www

QA tests are run which compare the commits available on each website.  Differences between the lists usually indicates a problem to be fixed.

devgit is using the GitHub repos. Everything else is based off the subversion repos.

As I write this, the repos and their interval to the latest commit are:        - 2020-08-09 12:18:16     - 2020-08-09 05:43:14 +0000 > 7 hours - 2020-08-08 01:48 EDT > 19 hours

With such large gap and the resulting 'missing' commits, the QA tests are failing.

Today is especially bad.
