Do you feel like 1 week is not enough time for you to do a git checkout and familiarize yourself enough with GIT to upload patches? Is that the issue? If so, how long do you feel would be reasonable?

If you’re not ready to adopt the GitHub workflow for a reason or another, git-svn / bugzilla patches is still a thing and will still work for now. Only committing from pure SVN repositories would go away in a week.
