SubSucka sucks a SVN repository into Git in a distributed manner.
Since jQuery has about 4000 commits, this will split up into 40 threads that each
fetch 1/40th of the repo, then pull all the objects into one repo and rewrite all
of the commit objects properly with data obtained from 'svn log'.
When it works (ie: when SVN doesn't hang), it goes WAY faster than git-svn import.
Getting Started
rake c # will compile and start the shell
> subsucka_server:start(). # starts the master node
> subsucka_slave:start(). # starts the slave node
> subversion_import:import_uri('').
