My feeling is they use svn2git internally. Apart from that, this is
what they say about the service:

"If the repo you are importing is very large, your import may time out."

This was apparently my case - I tried it too with Geany but the import
wasn't successful. With svn2git the whole import takes about 90
minutes and I guess this is too much for the GitHub server.
