The plan is to add an SVN commit hook that prevents changes. There should
be an associated message pointing to boostorg on GitHub.

The key steps are:

* Closing svn for commits. Of course the svn repo will be preserved for
historical purposes.
* Shutting down the conversion process, so that the boostorg GitHub repos
are no longer being overwritten.
* Opening the boostorg GitHub repos for use.

Each of these steps is preceded by some inspection and testing, and will be
announced on the Boost list.
