My personal opinion here is that we should try really really hard to not 
fragment the KDE community further then we already have done so far.
I think its really important that if KDE services are needed they use what the 
rest of KDE uses and go to git at the same time as the rest of KDE does so.

The reason for this is that I think we should put a foot down and get everyone 
and their pets to help out with the couple of left blockers and just get 
everyone over to git ASAP.

We have 2 active projects trying things out and fixing bugs, now lets all put 
our hands together and get everyone over.

I think its fine if you start your new project on gitorious, but then wait for 
the rest of KDE to migrate before getting the hooks and the translations etc. 
Essentially, wait for KDE to move to git before your new project can be part 
of the KDE community.
