Even though I have yet to try this.. Which I'll do later tonight when I get
home.. It's possible with subversion 1.7 to just use the svnrdump command
to dump out a subtree from svn with history. Then to load it back up to to
Github through their subversion interface. Thereby preserving all history,
including branches if you follow the trunk/branches naming or manually load
back into trunk and branches individually. I'll post some steps later
tonight as to how the results look like.
