Synchronising two-way between svn and git is *possible*, but tricky.
I'm not exactly an expert on git, but I tried to do this for a project
and had it sort-of-working for a while, before it blew up. I think
it's possible to handle if you know both git and svn well, but I think
it requires that. So if you're willing to invest the time in becoming
an expert on git, you can keep svn ;)
