I think it is up-to-date now? I think the problem is when several svn 
commits occur in quick succession, and the second tries to sync the git 
repository while the first is still working. I guess the common case is 
when you're working on a git repo and merge it to svn in a way that 
retains the discrete git commits as svn commits.

Each commit triggers this script


and these lines (usually the second?) fail


leaving the local git repository in a condition that requires manual 

I guess this requires a more sophisticated implementation, where the svn 
commit adds a task to a time-ordered queue, and the queue waits until 
each previous step has been complete.
