Do git repositories cloned from git-svn mirrors work properly?  For

                       /     \
                      /       \
                git clone A  git clone B

I don't think one can share commits from clone A to/from clone B without
going through the parent git-svn repository.  Is that right?  I recall
having read something about that somewhere.

If this is a problem, it might be counterproductive to provide a
repo.or.cz mirror at all, because people will think it's a "proper" git
repository when it really isn't.

BTW, the llvm.org git-svn mirror is for trunk only, right?  How
difficult would it be to include the latest release tag in the git-svn
mirror (RELEASE_28 right now)?  This would greatly help people that work
with the latest release of llvm rather than trunk.
