I was talking about git://git.webkit.org/WebKit.git. I know how to use
git-svn, thanks ;)


PS: A note about the slowness of fetching the whole repository: this is most
probably due to the fact git-svn doesn't use git-fast-import to create its
objects, which means it forks a lot of git-hash-object and wastes a lot of
time doing so.
