I assume, that the clone url follows the structure of your repository, so
it is something like http://MyRepoAddress/a/b/MyDir, right?
It looks to me like that git-svn clone should work.
Could you try cloning a little a toy project of mine like this?
git svn clone -r11 --stdlayout --preserve-empty-dirs
It works on my Window image, but it is really slow, took like a minute.
My git/svn versions:
C:\temp\peekr>git svn --version
git-svn version 1.7.10.msysgit.1 (svn 1.4.6)
Do you have any possibility of doing your initial git-svn clone on a Linux
machine? I believe there are some low-level operations in git-svn that run
really slow on Windows.
