Well, as KDE experience shows, SVN and Git are not incompatible, i.e. you
can have SVN for translators, even if some development are done in Git.
And, second, if we could use e.g. Transifex, then underlying VCS is mostly
irrelevant to the translators (though experienced ones who have proper
permissions could also interact directly with underlying VCS, be it SVN or
Git, if needed).
