When I import a SVN repository in git, the whole history should be fetched using git svn (BB-7165)

Issue #5966 wontfix

created an issue

Today I just get a simple checkout and I lose the history

Getting the whole history imported would be really appealing and would help the transition to bitbucket .

Note that the same would apply for hg

    We do understand that a full history import from SVN would be ideal.

    However these operations can be VERY CPU intensive and we do not feel like we can provide that service at an acceptable level.

    We do try to provide docs on how you can convert yourself.

    We have decided not to support a full SVN importer.

    I hope you understand.
