[Nano-devel] polished git repo

i've spent some time doing an automated/hand conversion of the svn repo
to git.  a plain conversion doesn't work for a few reasons:
 - trunk/ contains a nano/ subdir instead of being in trunk/
 - some branches/ also contain a nano/ subdir, but not all
 - same goes for tags/
 - some of the converted tags would pick the wrong base rev and generate
   a big commit to sync to the tag state
 - some of the svn tags were bad (created multiple times)

so after doing a conversion of trunk/nano/ as the master branch, i did
conversions for each branch/ (making sure they synced with trunk), and
located all the tags in the git history to match them up.  i checked the
content against the original svn and it looks good, and did a spot check
of some tarball releases, but only a few.

the only two outstanding issues:
 - the converted git does not do include keyword expansion (e.g. $ID:$),
   so many of the files will not diff exactly to the tarballs.  git does
   not make this easy, so i think it's fine to leave as-is.
 - the git messages all have the svn metadata in them.  e.g. the log has:
   git-svn-id: svn:// 
   i think it's OK to leave these in.

so with all that said, you can find the repo here:
or view it online here:

it's set up such that i can continue to import new versions from svn.
it's not like we need to put a halt on svn dev and pick git right now.
