I'd keep them as separate entries, like so:

 * "git-svn" has been taught to use the serf library, which is the
   only option SVN 1.8.0 offers us when talking the HTTP protocol.

 * "git-svn" talking over https:// connection using the serf library
   dumped core due to a bug in the serf library that SVN uses.  Work
   around it on our side, even though the SVN side is being fixed.
