I converted a lot of the old SVN repositories to Git but not all of them
in time when we moved to salsa. I guess it is also OK to just use gbp
import-dsc to import all versions since Jessie. Don't bother with the
old history. It was preserved but there is nothing that prevents us from
starting fresh. And yes, most of those old SVN packages are basically
unmaintained. Fortunately they don't require much maintenance but new
maintainers are always welcome.
