Well, since jungerl is just a big dump, a SVN google repos is
probably the simplest solution. The good thing is that the git-svn
connection is so good that git fans (including myself) can still
use git for local work/sharing and still be able to push towards google.

So someone just need to volunteer to create the google account and run 
the cvs2svn script. I think that Luke at least need to create the 
account since he probably is the owner of the sourceforge project
and therefore will need to approve the google account.
