Use Subversion to Manage Git?

Hi All,

My apologies if this has been asked. A search of the archives doe not
show anything recent, and Google is returning a lot of spurious hits.

I'd like to use Subversion to manage a Git. Is anyone aware of a
plugin that offers the extensions? I was thinking something like: `svn
checkout git://...`. After the initial checkout, subversion would know
its a git repo and translate subversion commands to git. It would be
great if it could handle something like: `svn checkout -git

I only need four or five basic commands - checkout, update, commit,
add (files), remove (files).

I would like to use subversion to manage git it because I'm happy with
subversion (I understand the workflow and know the commands), git
baffles me due to its workflow and out-of-the-box complexity (I have
no clue as to what most of [1] talks about, or why I have to do it
after a checkout), I don't have the time to read the book at the
moment (the man pages suck, and I have no spare cycles for the next 6
or 8 weeks or so), and I can no longer avoid git (in the past, I
simply walked away because it was not worth the aggravation).
