(First sorry for replying so late, I'm operating in semi-vacation mode
these days :)

I think using svn2git and then some manual adjusting the tags is the
best option. The scripts don't  don't do this automatically because in
svn tags aren't real tags - it's a copy of the trunk state but at the
same time you could in addition modify any file so for git it's
something like tag + commit combined.

So far I haven't seen any script automatically converting svn branch
merges into git merges - again, the information what branch was merged
where isn't stored by svn. So this information has to be provided
manually with the grafts file. You can read about the grafts file
