I also don't see any benefit in repository engine change. SVN works good.

Because I use git for majority of my work projects (they were git from scratch),
I decided to use it for gramps also.
I use git-svn for this purpose with no problems for a long time.

If anyone need, he can synchronize using git-svn.
There are a lot of howto or blog posts on the Internet where this model is described in detail.

And I don't care to convert to git just because it is trendy. If we follow the trendy VCS of the day, then in 2 years we will be switching to bzr or something else.

BTW, there are lots of projects where the developers use either, and
as you point out Rob, it is easy to make your own git repository from
svn. You could start one, keep it up to date, and see if people use
it. Just make sure that your commits are in the proper format for the
official svn repository when you are ready to commit there.
