That's understandable.

Justin, pardon my ignorance, but do you know any tool that imports whole repository history
making many requests to our svn servers? You already support fisheye, ohloh and similar services.

Aren't they putting lots of load at *initial* stage?

Joe has been observing my attempts to clone Cocoon repository and he admitted that git-svn
is not 
such a stupid tool as it may seem at the beginning.

FYI: I'm using git-svn for three months now while developing Cocoon and I bet that you will
find *no 
evidence* in logs that my client was git-svn. Especially, you won't find any evidence of DoS

performed by my git-svn instance.

Obviously, I'm not in the camp "let's switch to Git" either. What only worries me is that
you seem 
to only see two options:
   a) let's switch to Git for every single repository ASF serves in SVN now
   b) let's stick to SVN at server-side and close any discussion about using Git on client-side

Personally, I don't understand what's exactly your problem with me using git-svn.

I have no intention in discussing politics here. The only problem I have is that svn lacks
features that *I* see very important to me. It's ability to quickly and powerfully explore

I've contributed to Cocoon fairly a lot of work that is stored on ASF servers. I fail to understand

why you want to seriously limit access to my work and my colleagues' work.
