Also sorry for the delay to test the new setup.  Thanks for the migration!
The new repository works fine on my side.

Would it be a .gitignore file per directory like our svn:ignore 
attribute?  (svn propget svn:ignore -R)

> drop $Id$ strings (Git doesn't support them)

A "sed -i" to remove them all, with a manual changes for a few files 
where it is not as straight-forward as a mere removal?
Same thing for $Revision$ and one $Date$ we also have.
And AC_REVISION([$Revision$]) dropped in configure.ac.

Like updating our documentation to mention Git/git instead of 

I can have a look at these.
