Please join the infrastructure-dev@ list and ask there. There are literally hundreds of people
using it quite successfully. We wont be exposing it to rsync, thanks.

> git-svn stores metadata in an svn mirror that is hard to reproduce after you do a clone
from such a repository. This means that while you can do git pulls, you can't do git svn dcommit,
which would be such a nice feature to have. I've tried to do it several times and failed and
I know of a few other people that couldn't do it either. 
> A simple solution to this problem would be to expose git repositories using rsync; this
would allow folks to mirror the full repository, including svn metadata, and then rebase/
dcommit to their liking.
> I did a proof of concept of this by fetching a mirror of apache lucene reopsitory using
wget -m -np, then manually (find -exec rm...) pruning index.html files and converting bare=true
to bare=false. Works like a charm.
