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
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/robert/svnroot/.git/
Repository has been moved: Repository moved temporarily to ''; 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 instead.

    $ git svn clone -s
