IMO that was a big mistake. We switched over too soon before tools to
migrate history were available.
We absolutely must have the author history, if only to maintain
correct copyright attributions when moving code around.
Importing history should work pretty well for git. When Wine moved
to Git, we
managed to actually restore the history of an older cvs repos that the
development cvs repository didn't have anymore.
Yep, I imported ~240 svn branches into a git repository with git-svn
and AFAICT it worked perfectly. This gave me a git repo of 510M
compared to a svn checkout of trunk in 119M.
