I wouldn't mind staying with SVN and using the official Git mirror

You mean with a then writable Git mirror?

Not having read the whole three threads yet after my vacation, I still see sticking with SVN for "trunk" development as an option that leaves the choice between git and hg to the individual and leaves us with a monotonically increasing revision number.

A writable git/hg repo might be used for the release branch efforts independently. Just a thought.

Or how else would you push
commits to subversion?

I haven't dared to try git-svn's dcommit function yet.

What I did in the past was to simply keep an SVN working copy alongside git/hg repos and to use `patch` and a watchful eye on `svn status` to prepare my commits. I didn't do nearly as many commits as the core developers of course, so that won't fit everyone.
