Yes, I would also prefer if there was a proper and complete git switch
(it would greatly save maintainer's work IMO) but I haven't seen much
enthusiasm from the core developers for the move so it's better if
people who use git have at least an up-to-date git mirror from which
they can create their private branches.

I guess you could git svn dcommit from the post-receive hook if you
have access to the git repository. But I guess it works for simple
commits only and not merges and so on.

(To your question regarding writing my name - I write it that way
myself too because I'm lazy to switch to Czech keyboard so I guess
it's OK ;-)
