As a band-aid before this is configured, I put hourly updating mirrors on 
Github:

	http://github.com/pv/numpy-svn
	http://github.com/pv/scipy-svn

Not much new under the sun here: these are based on and compatible with 
David's Git branches. Since git-svn produces a reproduceable tree, I 
think we can just pronounce our trees as the official Git mirror.

David already wrote some time ago documentation what to do when you want 
to use git-svn to commit changes back to SVN:

	http://scipy.org/scipy/numpy/wiki/GitMirror

If there are merges in the stuff to be dcommitted, git-svn seems to 
become a bit confusing. It's probably useful to do "git-rebase -i HASH" 
to linearize history before dcommit, but I'm a bit unsure what's the 
proper workflow in this case...
