As far as I know, they are still recommending people use svntogit for 
large checkouts. I would think it to be wise to reflect the layout of 
this and/or the SVN repository that they intend to switch to, but that's 
just me.

Also I hit a problem this morning.

I'm not sure if this is just a problem with the web interface and/or 
related but ...

1) Visit any package on https://www.parabola.nu/packages/
For instance: https://www.parabola.nu/packages/core/i686/coreutils/

2) Click "Source Files"

3) You will notice it redirects you to abslibre.git
For instance: https://projects.parabola.nu/abslibre.git/tree/core/coreutils

Result: No source files or PKGBUILDs are available or viewable via the 
web interface any-more,
