  • Have you tried http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/HgSubversion [selenic.com]? It looks like the initial import will be slow, but it seems to be getting top billing from the Mercurial maintainers.
    • Admittedly this is only from reading its fine manual, but it looks more like git svn than a "proper" importer. i.e. it concentrates on bidirectional tracking of one remote branch in a subversion repository, not on untangling the "branches are branches and tags are branches too*" mess that a subversion repository can get into, not on converting them all to first class tags and first class branches.

      * but really they're all just copies within a directory tree.

      • That doesn't look like a proper importer because that's not the proper importer; this is:

        http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/ConvertExtension [selenic.com]

        You basically just do

        $ hg convert

        in whatever repository you are converting from, but there are lots of options including some svn-specific features. I think it also remembers what it's converted so a subsequent convert picks up where it left off. I've never used it with Subversion, but I once converted the Perl git repository this way and it worked fine.
  • I can't answer your question directly, but I know that my Snerp Vortex is designed to support more than just git.

    Someone with Mercurial chops could write SVN::Dump::Replayer::Mercural, and then snerp would support --replayer=mercurial
