but it is a further sign that most people who actually work on the code 
don't use svn during the normal work and workaround this with git svn. I 
can understand that svn is an Apache own tool but in the long term i 
hope that we are able to switch to git that is more appropriate to the 
workflow of the developers.

Yes i know the developers can also adapt their workflow but we should 
keep in mind to make it easy for developers as well. What does it help 
when we have a nice svn based project but nobody wants to develop it... 
I know that this view is a little bit too heavy but svn doesn't help us 
at the moment. It's only a burden ...

Just my 2 cents here. And No further discussion from me at this time ;-)
