git-svn is currently broken on cygwin


While trying to get git-svn to work on cygwin I came across a bunch of problems. As it turns out there are some problems with subversion-perl that ultimately cause git-svn to fail. Unfortunately it could be another few weeks before this is fixed as the maintainer of that perl module is on vacation. Argh.


Cygwin is in a weird place,

Cygwin is in a weird place, lots of things work well, but Windows just isn't a good foundation to run UNIXy software. Makes it unfortunate for git adoption rates though.
