I see, so the graph is an artefact of the mapping done in the

I would *personally* prefer to see the moving around of files and
associated fixups done in the SVN repo before moving to git, because
unlike svn once git's history is written, it is forever unchangeable.
Also, moving files between git submodules after the git move will
lose history.

But in the end, so long as the git output can compile, I don't care
