The history of branches/release wasn't much better. You can still use
subversion to examine the old history, and find out what need to be
merged. In this case:

svn mergeinfo --show-revs eligible

svn mergeinfo --show-revs eligible

Then look through the develop log to find the equivalent git revisions
and decide whether they need to be merged.

Although I think I'd just create separate clones of master and develop
and reconcile the differences manually and then mark it as fully
merged. A graphical merge tool could help here.
