There are also details of at
http://john.albin.net/git/convert-subversion-to-git of how to preserve
to identity of committers. In our case we probably want to update the
command to:

svn log -q | awk -F '|' '/^r/ {sub("^ ", "", $2); sub(" $", "", $2);
print $2" = "$2" <"$2"@users.sourceforge.net>"}' | sort -u >

before we start editing the file.
