Public references to SVN

This morning, we had a brief discussion about the fact that we have several public references our source code in SVN. These references will need to be updated to reference Git. We don't yet have a clear plan for this, but surveying the terrain seems like a good start.

First off, our public website: The "Download Infusion" page refers to SVN
  references tag in SVN: includes live link and text of the svn command

As well, the wiki is rife with references. A search for "SVN" turned up 33 pages of search results. A scan of the first 10 of these pages turned up the following pages, which mention SVN and/or link to the repository:

each of the individual release pages (including "current"), e.g.

I'm not at all convinced that we're going to be able to come up with any form of simple or automated process for updating all these references: For one, the URL references are not all to the same URL (some to trunk, some to a tag, some to an incubator project...). For another, several of them include narrative references and snippets of SVN command-line instructions.

I think we might just have to have an all-hands-on-deck blitz where everyone picks a section of the wiki and fixes stuff.

Does anyone have any alternative suggestions?
