As far as I can tell, this git repository lack all the existing source
code history from the subversion repository.  This is a very bad idea.

Please restart and create a new git starting point by migrating the
subversion repository with tags and all to git to keep the history of
the project source code.  If you need help with migration, I would be
happy to give guidance.  Master source migration is a task that should
be done with care, and it is a good idea to plan for a few iterations
with testing to get a good result.

This can be a starting point:

  git svn clone \
    --tags=tags -T trunk sysvinit-git

I'm not sure why there are no tags created, and the back-refs in the
comments should be removed in the final conversion.

The subversion repository should be spit in three, one for sysvinit,
startpar and insserv.

Happy hacking
