Sorry, I think I didn't express myself clearly. What I want is a tree,
based on the upstream tree so that I can send Peter pull requests from
there. From what I understand, to do that I need a public tree
somewhere, and since I had commit access to svn before, that somewhere
could be uclibc.org.

But I don't know how to setup that public repository, from where I
will later on my local machine do the git clone from and checkout for
creating branches in my private tree.

I've read a couple of documents already, including the git for svn users.

I think I figured what I should do... I guess I should do:
ssh uclibc.org
mkdir git; cd git
git init
mv .git buildroot.git
touch buildroot.git/git-daemon-export-ok

Well, I will have to wait for another hour for the cronjob to see if
that's what I was supposed to do.

Any ideas how to keep an svn tree in sync with the git tree?
Previously I used svn merge, but now I have no idea what to do.

Kind Regards,
