See git://git.tokkee.org/rrdtool.git. This repo was created using the
following git-svn command line (and is sync'ed each hour):

  git svn clone -Ttrunk/program -ttags -bbranches/*/program \

It does not import the SVN tags as Git tags, though. Afaik, this feature
is not available (yet?), since SVN tags are more like SVN "branches".
I'm thinking about writing a small script to take care of that, though.

A side-note for those who were already using that repo: Previously, this
repo included the entire rrdtool repo as well (i.e., the top level
directory of "trunk"). The old repo has now been moved to
