You are right with one clarification: The svn repository must be set up to
trigger a rebase in the fetching repository upon committing.
I've found the best way to do this is to have a svn post-commit hook that
triggers a job that does this (git svn rebase/fetch + push to bare repo). It
is also good if this job does some kind of mail notification, so that you
can see what happens. Personally, I use a Jenkins/Hudson job for this.
So to be clear: In order to a dcommit - you must have the latest SVN
revision in your local repository.
(Normal git-svn users usually achieve this by doing git svn rebase before
they do git svn dcommit - but with this git-svn-mirror setup, we have to get
the latest commit through the fetching+bare repo.)
