Usually it's used the other way around (i.e. use git to commit to a
upstream svn repo), but nevertheless, git has strong svn support, as
The equivalent of 'svn co' would be 'git svn clone', the equivalent to
'svn up' would be 'git svn rebase'.
As you can see, updating is slightly less trivial because git works
very differently, but generally it should work fine.
Anyway, convincing the rest of AMD would probably be more fun :P
I understand that a lot of people hesitate to switch to git because it
seems so complex and powerful - but the regular workflow is very
simple and very very easy to learn.
