Default svn-to-git mirroring

I've been lurking here for some time, and have seen
some recent opportunities to help make a difference,
so have just applied for membership to the sysadmin group.
For example, Fabio Di Nitto and I would like to set up
an svn-to-git mirror for a project on fedorahosted.

While I set up and maintain git.et.redhat.com, it's not open for ssh
access to people outside of Red Hat, so it's rather limited.

I am planning to help Jim to get this project going and maintain the git
tress I already own. Since they are all "special" cases for
fedorahosted, this will lift some work from the usual suspects.

I'm confused as to what this actually means. The subject and bodies of
these emails don't match eachother

What is it exactly you two are proposing?

Right.. 2 things.. I shouldn't have mixed them up.

1) Jim and I need to setup an svn-to-git mirroring within fedorahosted.
This will allow a one direction way to export svn projects into git
and sync via svn hooks. For eg. svn.fh.o/corosync/trunk to
git.fh.o/corosync.git/master branch.
We have plenty of use cases for this setup.

2) Personally, I often ask guys around to do this or that on the git
trees I own on fedora hosted. For me, being able to access hosted* to do
the job myself, will lift work from the other admins and speed up things
around.

So are you two working on a svn mirroring solution for Fedora Hosted svn
projects? Or just a couple of one offs for your own hosted repos?

Is there interest in a general solution?
Resources?

I believe in doing things "right", so tend to prefer
tools general enough to be reused.
Whether I can learn enough (and quickly enough!) about
what's required to make it happen may be another story.

I don't like "one off" solutions at all.

We will start clearly with one project to drive the tests.

If the test drive results in some good, then we will make it generally
available. There is no point to keep a secret either.

I just don't like the precident of "I want to do X with my project and you
don't support it, let me log in and do it myself." I'm also trying to
make sure the pros of this outweigh the cons.

I'm convinced that this would be generally useful. The proof is easy
to see when you count the number of ad-hoc maintained git mirrors of svn
repositories. However, the individual-maintained ones, while convenient
do come at a price. You have to trust the person doing the job not
just to do it properly and regularly, but also to run a tight enough
system that no one will ever crack it and sneak in a commit that adds
a modified build or test script that will open a hole in your firewall.

If people want git repos... why aren't they using git? I'd say go ahead
and set it up so we can take a look and see if it'll work. Fedora Hosted
is a value added part of our infrastructure, meaning it's not the focus of
what we do, it currently costs almost $0 to support. I don't want to end
up with:

As cool as that is every time you add something, the system gets more
complex and more difficult to support, especially when we start to get
turnover on something someone put in. It sounds like Nigel's already
sponsored this project so have at it. Lets see how it goes.
