instead fo svn export
git archive HEAD | tar xzf -

also combine repos with submodule in main mythtv repo if you prefer 1 
tree like before.

also transferring patches use stgit (if you were using git svn 
previously like me)
uncommit your patches, export them,
then import patches into new repo stgit
