kdeutils has finished moving to git; I have done the initial pushes to
all repositories and svn only has a MOVED_TO_GIT file.

As for the concerns about being able to build everything as a single
module, I've created a scratch git repository [1] containing the files that
used to be in the top-level kdeutils directory in SVN, including
CMakeLists.txt. I am open to where to put these instructions in TechBase
or anywhere else you think they are needed.
