One thing about git-svn is that this is not really needed if you just
use git and I installed git from source on many linuxes and clusters
and it just works, as it is just pure C. I usually just use git-svn on
my laptop/workstation, where I install the Debian/Ubuntu packages, and
I create the git repository, upload to github.com or somewhere else
and just work with the git repository.

But I agree that if it installs git-svn and it doesn't just work, it's
a big problem.
