I keep an unofficial git-svn cloned copy here:

The tarball includes all of the SVN metadata. To update it, you can:
git svn fetch && git checkout trunk

During a `git svn fetch` or another operation, you may see this error:
error: cannot lock ref 'refs/remotes/ctrl+\\-2371+2123-2'

This is due to a bug somewhere in svn or git-svn; to fix it, you can
recursively grep the .git/ directory and manually delete all references
to the branch. Everything seems to work fine after doing this.

In case anyone is curious, git-svn takes about 26 hours to mirror it,
because it restarts at r1 for several branches. I am told this is due
to the use of SVN partial branches.
