The cleanup has been successfully completed. I have documented the cleanup 
in the commit log for a number of affected revisions [1].

The repository is now again available for commits. I've done some checks 
and everything looks perfect, but please be alert for unexpected problems.
I have made backups of the repository at two points and will keep those 
until we are confident there are no hidden issues.

I would recommend everybody to do an 'svn up' before doing any new work or 
before committing changes.

!! If you do notice anything odd, please mail the debian-boot list ASAP !!

* People with a git-svn checkout with history should be aware that their
  history no longer 100% matches the cleaned up subversion repository.

* People who have backups of the repository may want to check that their
  backup is still valid and/or make a new one.

My thanks one final time to Bastian for his comments and suggestions during 
the development of the cleanup procedure.
Sorry for any inconvenience due to the unavailability of the repository, 
but I think the end result was worth it.
