[R] Migrating R packages from svn/R-Forge to git/Github

[I'm not sure if this post should go to R-devel, but thought I'd start
here for wider readership.]
I have a collection of R packages that I maintain using the
(mainly on Windows) with SVN on the R-Forge system,
I'd like to consider moving these to git projects on GitHub, but I'm not
sure how best to get started. I'm not sure if can can clone/copy
a project from the R-Forge svn directly to github, or if I have to first
create a local git repo from the R-Forge svn and then push to github
However, there are linux tools for this (git-svn and svn2git), but I
haven't found equivalents
for Windows. I suppose I could do this initial part on my linux server
where I now use git and
github for other projects.
I'm also contemplating moving from eclipse/StatET to RStudio for
development, but that would be
down the road a bit.
Has anyone made this transition or have suggestions for how to ease it?
What are the
gotchas to watch out for?
