Another option would be to keep John's Jeeves set up to handle all 
git-svn interaction until we can drop our svn set up completely.

The only change needed on John's server would be that it should push all 
updates to the gitolite repositories instead of the github ones. The 
gitolite manages repos then push to github.

The last part is the only part we want to keep long term: master 
repositories in gitolite on, which sync to github for a 
wider audience.

In the worst case, we have to keep the git-svn stuff around until we 
abandon the 2.4 development. But with some tweaking, it may even be 
dropped sooner.

So the question is: is it worth the effort to try and replicate the 
git-svn bridge on ?
