the only reason i want it on svn; is because that makes it all the more 
transparent. ie: for users working with svn just means using svn.mageia.org . 
if it's svn:// or http:// or svn+ssh:// or whatever.

tbh a simple proxypass on a machine that has apache(if indeed it has.) anyway, 
is not so complicated. with caching on it, it would reduce the load to the svn 

perhaps with this setup it would not be needed to have a copy (due to the 
caching), but i can be wrong.

in any case, keeping simple is the best option, but i think from user pov 
using svn.mageia.org is just simple for them.
