Default tracking the kernel with svn

Hello, d-kernel people,

You are tracking the kernel packaging with SVN. Do you just import
snapshots/tarballs and maintain your changes across them, or do you
have some funky setup that allows you to keep an SVN repo in sync
with a Git upstream?

This is a serious question, not flame bait or facetiousness, as we
are trying to find a strategy for a similar situation and would love
to benefit from your experience.

We only keep patches/build goo in svn (aka, the debian directory). One
of us generates an orig.tar.gz and posts it, and that's what we
develop against. We don't keep the upstream linux source tree in
source control.

The orig.tar.gz has to be generated to strip out non-free bits. This
stripping mechanism is part of the build system in svn.

This is a serious answer - but feel free to interpret it as flame
bait. <contrived insult here>
