There may be a confuse.

https://github.com/nirvdrum/svn2git can be package as svn2git and
svn2git-git, http://gitorious.org/svn2git/svn2git also can be package
as svn2git and svn2git-git.There will be conflict.

As I mentioned, https://github.com/nirvdrum/svn2git is a ruby gem
package, according to [Arch Ruby Gem Package
the name can be set to ruby-svn2git and ruby-svn2git-git, this way,
there will be no confusion and conflict.

One can have them both installed on a same machine.
