The wiki mentions the first one a couple of times, although strictly
speaking you need to add "/.git" to the end to get a URL you can clone
from. Apart from being out-of-date, it seems to be missing a lot of
branches (there's only 56, and it stopped updating in 2011-03; my
personal git-svn hasn't been updated since 2010-09 and has 2062
branches), it hasn't correctly imported the branches under "releases",
and the only tags are "last_vfs_and_web2" and "releases".

I guess it's not strictly necessary to have tags or releases imported if
the goal is to let people develop patches against trunk, but the fact
that branches are missing worries me - if a Twisted committer adds your
patch to a branch, you want to be confident that the new branch will
actually show up when you update your repository.

As for the other two, this is the first I've heard of them. Is there any
documentation about how they differ, are there records of how these
repositories were created and/or updated that I could add to the
GitMirror wiki-page?
