are you 100% sure you wanna screw up the authorship of the commits like
Author: dcbw <dcbw 4912f4e0-d625-0410-9fb7-b9a5a253dbdc>

You can have git-svn convert this into nice Dan Williams
<dcbw redhat com> author details.
Also the git-daemon-export-ok doesn't belong in the top-level directory.
You might wanna check on how you actually create repositories on remote
servers. Create a bare repository with shared access on the server and
then only put the git-daemon-export-ok there. You don't have to commit
So I create my repositories with this tiny command:
env GIT_DIR="/your/repo.git" git init --shared=group
This should create yourself a bare repository with no checkouts. And
then you convert your tree locally and just push it into that empty
