Yes, this is not trivial, and I would have actually expected questions how to 
do it best somewhere, e.g. here on kde-buildsystem or on k-c-d.

In which state of the svn -> git transition are we actually ?
It seems most modules are still in svn, at least they still exist in trunk:
kdeaccessibility, kdeadmin, kdeartwork, kdebindings, kdegames, kdegraphics, 
kdemultimedia, kdenetwork, kdesdk, kdetoys, kdeutils, kdewebdev

What is the plan for those ? Do we have a plan ?
Do we finally have an officially recommended git workflow ? Documentation ?

How to put it, I'm not overwhelmed by our svn->git transition efforts... :-/

As somebody who tries to take care of the buildsystem, i.e. of all modules of 
KDE SC, I still don't feel like figuring out for each module where it is and 
then get it either from svn or git... :-(
