Subject Re: Migration a Git archive to subversion

In general, this isn't precisely possible, because Git has a different
data-model than Subversion, which is probably why you don't see many tools
automating this.

Tags: In Git, a tag is just a pointer to a revision. In Subversion, a tag
is a separate revision of the repository, represented by a separate path.

Branches: Git tracks merging of branches with a special merge-commit
object, whereas Subversion uses the merge-info property. The discrepancy
can lead to subtle differences over time.

So I'm not sure you can find a fully automated tool to migrate either

However, having said all that, try the "git-svn" connector. Here's someone
with a similar sounding task:
