I also use git-svn in a lot of projects, but if lots of developers
want to track the project with git, then git-svn is not the best
git-svn is great and the best choice if you have commit rights to the
svn repo, because you can use git-svn dcommit your changes.
But if you are a normal user, then having a central git-repo that
people can clone for will be a better solution. For example, keeping
local branches with local modifications would be trivial(*) with this.
I would be willing to help setting this up, probably with tailor. Is
there an interest on this?
(*) trivial in the sense that git makes this possible and helps you a
lot on tracking upstream changes, not something that SVN or SVK does
