It's kind of tricky.  We only have diffs of our CVS stuff, because I
made a tarball back in October and copied it to another machine, which I
know has not been compromised.  We don't have diffs of our svn
repository to compare for 'before and after'.

However, you can rsync over the SVN tree from fd.o:
rsync -a gabe.freedesktop.org::svn-compromised .

and check it out to see if your repository's changed.


(PS: No, SSH logins are not ready for the general case yet.)
