Thanks for your persistence ;-) As this is a pretty old topic, I'll
give two URLs for people who are interested to view the previous

You would want to mark it as test_expect_failure in the first patch
and then flip it to text_expect_success in the second patch where
you fix the breakage?  Otherwise, after applying the first patch,
the testsuite will break needlessly.

I've Cc'ed Eric Wong (git-svn maintainer) and CMN who helped in the
previous round.  If the only issue is the above success/failure one,
I think Eric can tweak the patches while applying them (I didn't
look at the changes carefully myself, by the way).
