Excellent work Lukas!!!
Can't wait to check it out!!
We're waiting for Lukas to upload some final changes ( reformat, and removal of his local paths ) before we announce any further.
You are right however - and those certainly should be updated when this is completed.
It's a while I have announced that migration is to be started and SVN was going to be locked.
Now everything related to framework is migrated to Git and opened for further work! 
During this period, we have migrated RichFaces framework 4.x history,
reformatted complete source code with JBoss Community formatters,
re-thought the workflow which is now much more aligned with Git
and compiled the guide for contributors for managing pull requests.
From me, the last one is necessary: Let's enjoy hacking with RichFaces. ;-)
Great work Lukas!! This is going to be really help the project!
