It is a bit confusing, but "XFAIL" means that the test is known to fail.
 The only tests that are currently "XFAIL" are minor issues and/or
planned enhancements that that are not yet implemented. AFAIK, the
current trunk version is even more stable than the last official
release. If you see any tests that "FAIL", *then* you should worry.

Of course there might still be bugs, especially the git part, which is
still quite new. So we'd be very happy to get feedback about how it
works for you, and especially comparisons (ease of use, quality of
conversion) with any other CVS -> git tools that you may have tried.
