1) Stay with SVN
2) Switch to the existing GIT mirror
3) Wait for ERS to complete his conversion to GIT
4) Use the existing new conversion to GIT fixing authors and commit messages
5) I don't care
6) I don't care as long as we switch to GIT

No, please do not make it unnecessarily complicated. Maybe the questionaire
can include a free-form text field for more comments.
Btw, I do not believe we should do this kind of voting. Who's eligible to vote?
Is the vote anonymous? What happens when the majority (what is the majority?)
votes for option N?
IMHO voting is bike-shedding.
Those who do the work decide. _They_ may ask questions _and_ decide whether
to listen to the answer.
