Please, DON'T do that to the blessed. The most important thing from
gitorious is how to sync platforms code and VMMaker. Every commit in the
blessed comes with an associated (if required) new version in
ConfigurationOfCog, and hence, the update of the file

That is the ONLY way to have in sync both parts and to be able to "always"
build a VM.

So...ok, we can have a cron automatically pick up the branch from SVN and
push it in gitorious, but please, not to blessed.
