Repositories as old and large as ASF are the reason I created svn-fe.
git-svn is known to choke on these repositories.
If you have plenty of bandwidth, it might well be faster to:
* Grab an ASF archive (16GB)
* Use svn-fe to import the entire tree into git.
* Use a simple script to extract the standard layout into a new repo.
* Use git-svn to keep the new repo up-to-date.
