I am about to go out of town, but when I get back (December) I will have a
go at this
if no one else has done so already.

Every time in the past when I have attempted to make a git clone of the
Twisted repository,
git has complained that the Twisted svn repo is corrupt in some way. If
there is already a
reliable bzr mirror of Twisted, it might be easier to base the git repo on
that instead. Does
that seem feasible?
