I've been trying it out and I'm having some issues with this wrt. my downstream 
branches, which have been based on the official mirror on Savannah until Dec 27.

Now, I can merge yours and the old SV mirror using the 'ours' strategy. This 
works in that is creates a common ancestor with the downstream branches, so I 
can merge the resulting branch downstream.

However, it is kind of ugly since git-log then shows commits from both the 
Savannah and the .Cz branch, even though the commits were functionally 
equivalent.  It's logical, but it keeps 100k redundant commits around.

Would it not be possible to rebase the new changes on top of the old branches, 
or directly do the fast-import with the previous repository from Savannah?  Or 
are there disadvantages to the old conversion?

(I haven't figured out how to use rebase without common ancestors, so I haven't 
 tried it out.)
