Hi Sean, hi all,

First of all let me just express my joy for this decision. I believe
it can create an interesting dynamic around MASON.

Regarding your question, I do not have the experience myself, but it
seems the folk at GitHub have taken some care to guarantee things go
smoothly. They enforce a particular repository structure clearly
defining where branches and tags  reside:

https://github.com/blog/966-improved-subversion-client-support

Thus all svn actions should unequivocally map to a git action (or set
of actions), avoiding unexpected repository states.

Naturally, svn lacks loads of interesting stuff existing in git, such
as stashing, sub-modules, etc. If one of these modern things is pushed
to GitHub, then whomever accesses the repository with svn might start
missing some of the fun.

Regards,

Luís
