When I did it, I had to do in the old svn directory.
svn update (gets me to the latest upstream)
svn diff >patch1 (This extracted what I had changed from the upstream SVN.)
Then, I did a "git clone ..." as above into a new directory.
I then applied the patch1 to the new git directory.
I can then carry on as before, but using git instead of svn.
