We have a large project using subversion & buckminster.

I'd like to be able to use git locally so I've been looking at git-svn. However it would be painful to not use buckminster for the initial materialization.

Is there some workflow that would let me buckminster-materialize our project from the subversion repository and then use git locally?

There is nothing that magically turns your SVN repos into git repos.
If you have the projects materialized on disk and connected to SVN, then
it may be possible to go from there to git, but basically, IIRC, the
git-svn tools clones a remove SVN to a local git repository and sets up
things so you can pull / push to SVN using git.

If that is made simpler by first materializing the SVN content locally I
don't know. You have to experiment.

You can also clone SVN at github.

Don't know how well it works to work in both SVN and Git - I have only
used git-svn to migrate from SVN to git.

Once you have git clones, question is how you want things to work wrt
materialization, should resolution use your local git clones instead of
SVN? Do you have your git repositories cloned remotely somewhere? You
need to use a different RMAP than others (that use SVN) in order for
Buckminster to resolve against your git repos.

Hope that helps.
