Right, well, if you're generalising from how dpkg asks translators to
use git in http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Dpkg/GitUsage , don't. There are
a number of things there that are not strictly necessary, especially the
rebasing. KISS, and simply replace the svn commands you were using with
their git equivilants:

svn checkout => git clone
svn up       => git pull
svn add file => git add file
svn commit   => git commit -a; git push
debcommit    => debcommit -a; git push
