*Data* is trivial. *History* especially older and contorted history as
projects got re-arranged or accidentally mislaid, or chunks re-arranged,
*that* can be hard. The tool you're looking for is called "p4tosvn", and
there have been many variants. One of the dirtier ones, that allows
scrubbing idle or no longer used hisstory, is at
https://matschaffer.com/2009/11/migrate-from-perforce-to-svn/. That
actually uses the built-in git tools to pull from p4, and to export to svn.
That gives you the chance, if you want it, to delete obsolete branches or
bulky unwanted binaries and get them out of hte history.
