Yes. My email about the Subversion and Trac downtime hints at the
reason for this change. git-svn made a somewhat poor design choice
and stored the repository URL in every commit message, and relies on
these URLs matching the one that is configured in .git/config. As we
are changing SVN URLs we need to rebuild the git repository to match.
This has the unfortunate side-effect of changing the commit IDs
throughout the history of the repository. We hope to provide more
information on how people can switch to the new git repository once it
is in place later this week.
