I'm using git-svn instead of svn for working with the geany-plugin
repository. It combines the advantages of git (branching, fast, local copy
of complete history) with the given svn repository.
Because of this it feels like a normal git repository, but with the chance
to commit to the central svn repository.

Checkout is possible by git-svn clone http://path.to.svn.repo

Also it is possible to set up that it can handle the tags and branches
created in svn by using options and a couple of ore things. There is also
the chance to set up some prefixes for working on more project within one
svn repository, but from my current point of view it is only possible if
you got the
 |-Projekt A
 | -branches
 |-Projekt B
 | -branches
structure. (Still needs some investigation of me ;) )

IMHO the biggest advantage is to work without connection to network and
commit changes local and send them to the svn repo after I'm back in
network. But this could be also done by svk ;)
