I did not use svn2git myself. Christoph did the Kate migration, and from
what I have heard, the result in git is not completely what you expect.
Afaik, in our case, after the migration, there were some files that should
have been removed at some point. The solution was to manually do that in
order to finally have a clean git repository of Kate.

Given this, is it at all possible to write entirely correct transition
rules for all of KDE?

@Christoph: As you just did the transition, can you comment on what you
did exactly?
