In general, Subversion sucks (I don't say it loud, as it is an Apache
project ;) ).

Yes, it will be transfered.

Before really committing the changes to the SVN repo, you can always
test what will be committed:

git svn dcommit --dry-run

Then commit:

git svn dcommit

As long as you didn't yet run "git svn dcommit" you can do everything
you can do with git (combine commits, change commit message, etc.), you
have all the power of working with git :)
