> (For current svn users I assume using svn would become effectively impossible; the only tool I could find to do this is server-side and essentially maintains git and svn repositories in parallel.)
FYI, any Git repository on GitHub also functions as a Subversion repository:
$ svn checkout https://github.com/WebKit/webkit/trunk WebKit
You can even use Subversion branches to create pull requests on GitHub
(though I don't know what the performance would be like for a
repository as large as WebKit):
GitHub doesn't currently make the Subversion<->Git bridge available
for non-GitHub repositories.
I don't say this to try to convince anyone to switch to Git or GitHub;
I just thought it seemed relevant.
