Another bite of the reposturgeon

From: Eric S. Raymond <esr_at_thyrsus.com>

A detailed discussion of the impedance-mismatch problems in
translating Subversion histories to git import streams, and related
issues including (a) exactly how and why the existing conversion tools
are so weak, and (b) how reposurgeon does better.


I wrote the new dumpfile-format documentation so that I would know
enough to do *this*.

insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding."
