I ran into a problem just yesterday trying to set up git-svn on
Windows.  A bit of Googleing revealed that there's a bug in the
installer of the latest Windows version of Git.  It's just not
including all the perl modules that git-svn needs.

I've heard that there are workarounds, but I personally just installed
1.7.10 and went on my merry way.
