Here are the pages that need to be changed:
community/groups.html (the subversion commit list)
development/testing.html (which is out of date anyway)
users/download/index.html (this one is a bit tricky, so I'll handle it)
Subversion is mentioned on a lot of other pages - e.g. 'Clang from
subversion' in release notes, but they don't need to change. There's
also a couple things to do under 'site-tools', I'll handle that.

Could probably just do it on the beta branch, or maybe even live.
There's no reason to complicate things. Updating content is quite

Updating the website shouldn't be considered a separate task,
otherwise it won't get done. I won't know what changes to make, and no
one else will bother. Whoever is dealing with the testing will need to
update the testing pages. And so on. If editing the html is too
difficult for anyone, they can write it up in plain text, and I'll
update the site.
