Yep, I'm using git-svn mostly because (my understanding is*) that it
has better support for keeping a local branch in sync with a moving
trunk than plain svn; I was also planning on keeping the same working
copy on more than one computer, which seems a bit easier in the git
world than svn.  I'm not so much avoiding svn as playing around with
git, really :)

I have a couple of non-coding projects (e.g. for my real job) I need
to work on this weekend but I'll see about finishing up my work (at
this point it's just the tests and debian/changelog that need updates)
and pushing my changes into a subversion branch when I get sick of
writing & need a break or get those projects done.


* My understanding could, of course, be wrong on this point.
