I did as Andrew suggested and created two git repositories with one branch
using oldCM history and the second branch using having the svn history.
Then I checked out the svn branch and rebased onto oldCM. The head of the
combined branch is named master.
How do I manually set git/git-svn up so that HEAD points to -r rev in the svn
repository? Googling doesn't come up with a solution; I previously thought
google knows all.
When done, I would like git svn dcommit to be able to commit to the svn repo.
