It takes a script. I have my own ones for PostGIS/GEOS that do
SVN to GIT, but no way back. From GIT to SVN I do it manually.
Both directions are done with git-svn.

I'd love to see an OSGeo wide solution to keep SVN repositories
in sync with GIT ones, and there's already a ticket about it:

Comments and more importantly _code_ are welcome :)

GitLab is running on its own, temporary, machine.
Gogs runs on the same machine as Trac (and allows using
the same git repository from both).

That said, I suspect these "modern" systems want to have exclusive
ownership over git repositories.

What both GitLab and Gogs offer, though, is registering a repository
as a _mirror_ of another, so you could (for example) create a GitLab
mirror of the Gogs one, or viceversa. What remain separated are the
issues and pull requests.
