Because switching to either git or hg implies policy and maybe will leave
(parts of ) one group unhappy.

The principal command is "git svn dcommit"

Well, there is "git svn branch <branchname> " and  "git svn dcommit
<branchname>" that imply it can be done. I didn't test however yet.

Als not tested. But I guess you pull in the changeset locally and than you
push to SVN with "git svn dcommit"
