Strange error while trying to clone a SVN repo via git
I tried to clone the repository of the Linux Libertine project. It is a SVN repo, but I wanted to use git as my personal backend. Now, I got a strange error message:
$ git svn clone -s http://linuxlibertine.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot Initialized empty Git repository in /home/robert/svnroot/.git/ Repository has been moved: Repository moved temporarily to 'http://linuxlibertine.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot'; please relocate at /usr/lib/git-core/git-svn line 1923
Can anybody help me?

The URL you use actually suffers from a redirection loop (you can check it with your browser).
However, according to the develop page of the project on SourceForge, you’re not using the correct URL: you should use
$ git svn clone -s http://linuxlibertine.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/linuxlibertine
