I've been using git-svn for a few commits now and it seems to be working 
OK, please correct me if I've been causing problems yet :)

I've been doing normal Git where I make a branch to work on a specific 
thing, then merging into master branch.  When I'm done making 
commits/merges, then I use 'git svn rebase' to resync with SVN and then 
doing a 'git svn dcommit' to push the commits to SVN.  I added a 
.gitignore file containing a list of all the Autotools cruft and other 
files that change when configuring and building, and I also added 
.gitignore to the .gitignore so I don't accidentally put that file in SVN.

Does this sound reasonable?
