*we* didn't - Dan did. It seemed kinda hard though. I could only get
about 13 revisions before it crapped out due to missing dirs or repos
or something like that (pacbuild, srcpac, etc) - I'm not entirely sure
what the deal was - probably multi-project commits it couldn't

Looks like Dan actually used git-svn instead of git-svnimport, and
then had to do some monkeying with some of the data.

Yeah. I didn't know the devtools PKGBUILD used an svn pull - we should
probably push a real tarball up to the ftp dirs like we do with
