It's not the repository conversion that's the problem; it's about not
making it harder for folk to get things in before the end of the stage.
So I don't mind slipping the switch-over back a few days, but I don't
think we should pull it forwards unless that stage has already finished.
Immediately after the end of stage 3 seemed to be the best time to do
this while still giving plenty of time before we consider branching.
