Exactly the same way.

Oh, that's rather lame. Is there a reason you're not going to use
libgit2 instead of dulwich?

Well, they'd need a repository if we're going to use a GH tracker. What
repo would you use?

Ryppl is where we're hosting all tools associated with the transition,
so we've got a tracker there for managing the work
(https://github.com/ryppl/boost-svn2git/issues?state=open). Beman has
some creative ideas about how that tracker should be used that I'll let
him explain himself, since I don't really understand them.
