OK, I was not aware of that since I use only svn. Then, I understand
the point of the conversion. If only there was a svn-git...
(I was assuming one only needs git-svn to commit to the main repo and
that happens relatively rarely, and that local writes and remote reads
would be done in the git mirror without using git-svn. I guess it is
more complex than that.)
