The trick is to first clone the bare repository, and then do a git svn init
inside it, so it can be used for dcommitting.
There are two ways to set up a repository that you can dcommit from:
1) git svn clone (takes ages with big repositories)
2) git clone existing repository, and then do git svn init inside of it.
I assume you have done git svn clone once to create the fetching repo. You
pushed all content to the bare repo.
Now, developers can clone the bare repo, do git svn init inside of it, and
then they can dcommit from there, instead of having to do their own git svn
