At some point in the past, an anti-git-svn system had been set up on
llvm.org. Has this been disabled since? I don't manage to do much with

$ git svn clone http://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/llvm -T trunk llvm-clone
Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/llvm-clone/.git/
Using higher level of URL: http://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/llvm =>
RA layer request failed: Server sent unexpected return value (403
Forbidden) in response to REPORT request for
'/svn/llvm-project/!svn/vcc/default' at
/home/moy/local/usr/libexec/git-core/git-svn line 5131

(but I'm not really a git-svn expert either)
