Sometimes I missed the history from NMaven. So option three would be great, if you ask me.

And yes I have a working git clone. I First fetched the oldest revision explicitely and then
did the svn rebase.

It's quite difficult due to the svnbridge that doesn't support most of the mirroring without
difficulties (svnsync, git-svn, hg). The most workable solution to keep history intact seems
to be recreating the individual commits (with svn:author, svn:date and svn:log values), which
is something "tfs2svn" tries to do. That's been working ok, but I didn't get the whole way
through. I think Lars managed a git clone somehow that might be a helpful basis too?
