Andrew,

While I agree with you that git-svn is a great thing for working with
svn, here is another example of how git-svn is so close, yet so far...

It looks as though they are using an independent git-svn mirror.

Thus their r14118 is not the same as our mirror's r14118:
https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/commit/c9e8881516a1a09a5f4b19d459710286524bcda8
http://git.linaro.org/gitweb?p=mirror/edk2/edk2.git;a=commit;h=51b74ef3738e7f33b4f93878a3b40cab9254230c

This mismatch generally makes sharing changes/trees more difficult,
and thus is a point in favor of git vs. git-svn.
