If you use google code, use mercurial rather than svn.
That way, the data is portable.

If W3C supports mercurial, it ports (and syncs) trivially,
and if W3C goes with git, there are two-way bridges.
I've had pretty good luck with hg-git.

I think there are svn bridges too, but as svn sees itself
as the center of the world, I don't expect they'd work
all that well.
