Which goes back to the whole saga concerning the ability to remove objects
from repositories which was discussed about a month ago.

RE:  Re: Solving Large Repositories...
Thanks Guys for the info.. I'll look into whatever "git" is as I've not
heard of it before.
I found out that on one of my repos, an end user had started to upload a
Ghost image to the repos (12Gb), and then thought he'd "deleted" it when
he realized his mistake.. I got lucky this time, as I was able to
convince him he didn't need SVN for storing this file, and was able to
remove the repos completely...

Apply this patch to git-svnimport before trying to convert
a 12GB large subversion repository to git:
