I'm wondering if there is some way to use a svn dump for the initial
setup of the git repo.
The svn dump could be downloaded (in compressed form) via FTP in a way
that is by far faster than the initial git svn fetch

Another option is to make available a pre-loaded git repo in compressed
Developers that want to use git should download and uncompress the
pre-loaded repo and re-sync using git-svn for getting last svn commits.
