that conversion in time,
Sorry - the conversion was not made over the weekend. Mark Mitchell has
asked that the change over be held off until the discussion over what
happens to new patches (to GPLv3 sources) that want to be backported to
old branches (under GPLv2).
or should I start thinking about branching later?
If you can afford to wait then it would probably be a good thing. (On
the assumption that releasing under the GPLv3 is better than releasing
under GPLv2. At least for FSF projects anyway).

By hand. :-) Directory edit mode in emacs plus several greps to make
sure that I had not missed anything. Tedious but not difficult.
