I think it would be better to wait a few days to give time to  finish
off the rebuild. Although the downtime is short as you said, there is
always the possibility of some complications.  The cvs to svn switch
also involve a learning curve for non-dev TU so it might slow down the
rebuild. It will also give you more time to figure out how to deal
with the website issue.
