> It doesn't work because git-svn assumes that all of your branches begin at the same position in the SVN tree, i.e. llvm/branches/*.  The problem is that we have some branches in llvm/branches/*, some in llvm/branches/Apple/*, some in llvm/branches/ggrief/*, etc.  The end result is that git-svn gets horribly confused.
Same for tags. And current 2-level system will make stuff even worse
as it seems :)
