Yep, you need to mak e it happen as it involves decision no-one else can make 
for you.  There's basically three steps needed.  First, you have to decide on 
separate Git repos per app or stick with the monolithic module.  Second, if 
going for separete repos make sure everything actually builds properly that 
way.  Third you need to write the conversion rules for you history, but 
there's a few people around who may be willing to help out with that once you 
know what you want.  Have a chat on the #kde-git channel for more details.

On the subject of un-converted svn modules, the following are still left:


The kde-wallpapers and kdeartwork modules are likely to remain in svn until 
git handles binary blobs better.  Then there is also a lot of stuff still in 
extragear and playground.

Does anyone know the status of these modules?  Do we need to start poking the 
maintainers?  Now is a good time to do conversions as it's a few months before 
our next beta release and we'd want any moves settled in by then.
