Well, the only thing I can do with the script is exclude/include the
info about the original commit with --metadata switch. But of course
if I make the import from the repository at svn.geany.org, the links
will be changed to svn.geany.org. If you need some more advanced
formatting, you'd have to change svn2git scripts manually. Feel free
to send me the modifications of svn2git ;-).
