# r1234 is some revision within the recent past, like a week ago. git svn clone -r 1234 http://www.example.com/path/to/svn/trunk # Update repo to current HEAD git svn rebase # Tidy up some space git gc

If you do a
git svn clone and do not specify a revision, git will check out each revision one by one until it reaches SVN’s HEAD. You do not want to do this with a large repository, unless you really want to sit around for a few days.
