Also, does anyone know who exactly was looking for this "feature"?
From my memory it would serve two groups of people;
* users typically are not committers but follow svn and don't want to switch
to git. The experience is from the cvs->svn switch that many users took
another couple of months to actually do a new checkout.
We also noted that we would support this behavior as getting 100% of the users
of kde-svn to do a git checkout on day 1 is going to cause a lot of worries.
* translators that want to see the original docbook files should be able to
still use svn for that.
I don't know if this is still accurate since afterwards I learned that there
are scripts to parse a docbook and get all the individual strings out of that
into .po files. So why would a translator need a checkout of koffice/doc then?
* stuff like dirks dashboard would continue working without rewrite.
