The --mirror option adds
fetch = +refs/*:refs/*
mirror = yes
to [remote "origin"]. So one wouldn't need to edit .git/config manually.
However, the --mirror has another effect which I missed earlier: it makes
the remote consider all heads its own, so that "git remote prune origin"
would drop all branches, including local ones. Similar issue with
"git fetch". So I think it's not the correct solution.
But all of that is moot now. I finally figured out that I must push to
the mirror with
git push firstname.lastname@example.org:pv/numpy-svn.git \
Then it can be cloned simply with
git clone --origin svn git://github.com/pv/scipy-svn.git
And "--origin svn" only because we want svn/trunk instead of origin/trunk.
Also git-svn can be activated:
git svn init -s --prefix=svn/ http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scipy
git svn rebase -l
And as a bonus, the SVN branches are visible on Github!
I'll update the GitMirror page.
