    Similarly, Hurd's design is too complicated that they never finished it (yeah, I know they saw Linux coming and stopped working on it but even if Linux didn't exist they still would take a long time to finish it).
    Well,
    I think we could say the same about SystemD.

    Over complicated, gigantic process that never ends, were a set of scripts the Job is done..

Never searched to see if there is something better than reposurgeon out there (never needed), but if they were in a hurry they would probably work it out to be a less dumb algorithm, I've seen this some times, a Python scripts that goes on reading from disk and building dictionaries as there is no tomorrow.
      OfCourse,
      That project is his own research, is a life project, like systemd is.. created to maintain in his spare time, or to just kid around..

      Then someone that needs the things done, do a mere script with 300 lines of bash code, and the job is done..

            I believe people that likes simplicity, usually have refined taste, they passed for several languages on their life as professionals, they would not do such big mistake..

            If there are a "group" like you say,
            Probably would be formed by others that doesn't have good taste, or simplicity in mind..

            I hope that someone with good taste, would not self-include himself in that group..

              I'm genuinely unsure if this is English.

                I am really not sure either,
                For sure I only speak one language, my mother tongue.. the other 4 I try to do my best..
                A translation maybe from mine to a foreign one, but sometimes direct translation is not compatible..

                But, if I am capable to understand 5 Languages, for sure a minimal educated person, would be able to understand my attempt to speak English..
                Here I am not saying that I regard English has a Language better of worst than any other, its Just one of them..

                As a rule,from an "old clock",
                I take for myself, that... you should only give to others the same amount you receive..

                I think, ..next time you try to read my comments,
                You will see that you will not only be able to read, but you will also be able to understand, ...what was not written..

                Regards

                    Nope... a lot more than a decade. *Git* is nearly fifteen years old now... SVN was the new kid back in ~2001 when it started slowly displacing CVS, but that was a _long_ time ago now.

                      I never converted a repository with millions of lines and 100 000 more commits so I really cannot tell if a 300 line script can do the job cleanly, by giving a look at git-svn source, I guess not, also it appears to ignore most of SVN properties. Anyway, we do not know what exactly are their needs.
