So, while keeping the AmigaOS source code in a subversion repository seems to be possible, while at the same time accessing it through Git, it does not seem to be a good match. Part of what empowers Git users is in the workflow it allows, and to me it seems that this comes up short with Git access to a subversion repository.
Perhaps obvious, if it ever comes to that, is to store the whole source code (tags and all) in a "read only" public SVN repository for preservation and historic purposes, and push the latest "working" 3.1 version mix to GitHub and let it fork off from there, starting fresh.
