This topic has come up before on this list. But for my needs git-svn and
then stgit on top of that seems to work very nicely as well. If you are
particularly. There are git repos based on MythTV's svn as well. But my git-svn
clone happened before I knew about those.

The bonus of git-svn means that you can keep several local branches
based on svn trunk and only commit them upstream when they are ready.
