Is it guaranteed that the Git read-only mirror repository will always be
exactly up to date to the Subversion repository? (i.e. will every commit
to the Subversion store cause a refresh of the Git read-only mirror?)

If so then fine, any clone can be brought up to date from the Git
read-only mirror.

However if there is potential delay in mirroring or if a committer wants
to use Git to commit to the Subversion repository using Git then a clone
of the read-only mirror needs to be retargetted to the Subversion store

It would be good if this page explained how to retarget the clone taken
so that it can be kept up to date with Subversion directly.  i.e. What
is the sequence of instructions that allow "git svn fetch" to refresh
the git clone from the Subversion repository and "git svn dcommit" will
commit to the Subversion repository.
