As far as I'm concerned, anyone can use any mirror they want to. :) Your mirror might be best for your specific use case, but in reply I'd still like to point out the following: First, technically there is no difference between branches and tags in Subversion . So the tags are not actually tags in SVN in the sense of snapshots, but actually work exactly like branches. Keeping these as git tags in git mirrors is a matter of preference, but it might not work well if these "tags" are ever (accidentally?) updated in SVN. Secondly, your mirror seems to missing some empty directories (the BibleTime mirror handles these using the `clone --preserve-empty-dirs` workaround documented in `git help svn`): bindings/corba/java/classes bindings/objc/SWORD/Release-universal bindings/objc/SWORD/build bindings/swig/package/attic tests/testsuite/tmp Thirdly, your mirror is missing the rest of the branches which are present in SVN, the "trunk" branch seems to have been renamed to "master" and there's also an extra branch named "czech-locale". Finally, since the commit authorship information in your repository seems to have been rewritten, the mirroring is, strictly speaking, not that exact. Additionally, if your mirror is synchronized with SVN automatically, I doubt the automation can properly rewrite authorship information if new users commit to the SVN repository. Concerning preservation of authorship information in Sword++ , which is based on the  mirror, we've opted to use a .mailmap file (git help shortlog) instead of rewriting history. I think that updating that file poses less problems than rewriting history in a mirror. So the BibleTime mirror works well for us.
