You can use svn on svn://svn.mageia.org ( as said on the faq :
http://mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=svn-faq , but maybe the wording were not clear,
do not hesitate to rework it ).
For git ( used so far by forums ), everything is on git.mageia.org,
but we didn't setup yet a git web interface nor documented it yet because we are busy 
doing others things, and our git setup is kinda still experimental, no commit hooks, etc,

That's rather the contrary, we kept the same rpm branch ( the one from rpm.org )
and mandriva switched to another branch called rpm5. Usage is the same, packages are 
mostly the same, but I guess internally, there was lots of changes.
