In CouchDB we just check in our .gitignore files to SVN. Anything that
needs prop editing I do from a direct SVN check out. git-svn doesn't
create .gitignore files from svn:ignore properties, but it seems to
respect svn:exectuable. I've got no idea about other svn:properties,
but my guess would be probably not if normal git doesn't have a
corresponding feature.
