If anyone wants to import the CCL svn repository into git and host it on 
what exactly is stopping them ?

If there is some answer to that question - other than the fact that no 
one has
time or sees a clear benefit to doing so that would justify the 
disruption that
it would likely cause - I haven't heard it, and if there is some 
technical reason
I can't think of it.

see https://help.github.com/articles/importing-from-subversion/, and the url
that that the tool referenced on that page wants is likely 

Thanks for volunteering.  Good luck, and please let us know how you 
dealt with the issues that some people were trying to
