I suggest the following tweaks to the documentation for how to convert a 
repo from SVN to Git.  The :: syntax didn't work for the URL given to 
rsync.  I also had difficulty accessing the local copy of the repository 
I had made using rsync, so I've added some advice on how to do that.

 You'll usually perform the import several times before getting what you
 want. For this reason it's preferable to rsync the SVN repository
-locally, or create it from a dump:
-    rsync -av rsync:// svn_repo
+    rsync -av rsync:// svn_repo
+or create it from a dump:
     svnadmin init svn_repo
     zcat myproject.dump.gz | svnadmin load svn_repo/
+To access a local copy of the repository, use svnserve:
+    svnserve -d -r svn_repo
+Then access it with git svn with something like:
+    git svn clone svn:// -A authors-transform.txt 
--stdlayout ./temp.checkout
+where myproject is the subdirectory under svn_repo.
