Thanks.  git-svn is not maintained by Junio but by Eric and others on
the list.  I'm cc-ing Eric and Ben Walton so they can benefit from
your work.

It is indeed quite the intimidating pile of patches, so I do not think
we will be able to apply it all in one chunk as-is. :(

My advice would be to send five or so of the patches that you would
like to be reviewed first, inline, one per message, in reply to this
message so we can start to work on that.  Presumably the patches do
not regress git-svn's behavior but only make it saner, so even if this
is not a complete fix it should allow us to get started.  See
Documentation/SubmittingPatches for more hints.

Thanks and hope that helps,
