I believe the branches should be cleared up now.  Apparently "git svn" 
creates them all as git branches when they should really be git tags.

I believe I have changed the svn URL.  The output of "git svn info":

$ git svn info
Path: .
URL: svn://
Repository Root: svn://svn.savannah.gnu.org/texinfo
Repository UUID: 39fee189-59d7-47db-b5d4-205258b72aed
Revision: 8445
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal

I'm not sure if this is updated on Savannah or just on my version.

When this conversion is definitely finished, I intend to remove this 
metadata and disable the SVN repository on Savannah.

All the git commit messages reference the SVN versions, e.g.

    git-svn-id: svn:// 

It would be nice to change the URL to svn://svn.savannah.gnu.org/ 
instead just so it is clear where it came from. 
https://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/GitSvnSwitch implies this is 
possible but it links to a non-existent blog to explain how to do it.
