I did a git-svn clone with "-rHEAD" on the day I posted that message,
and now when I run "git svn fetch" my repository has the following

    $ git branch -a
    * master

The "gitk" branch visualisation tool shows me that SVN trunk is currently at
r33098 (which merged udp-doread-win-3396-2, although it doesn't show up
as a merge commit in git) and all the other branches have been created
from that point. So, it looks like it is gracefully handling new
branches, which is all we really wanted.

Should I update the "GitMirror" page to suggest people run "git svn
clone -rHEAD" instead of using the no-longer-updated official mirror?
Perhaps the page should also be renamed?
