I decided against tracking the fixes branches after I realised what
strange way the FPC team manages tags, branches etc in SubVersion. After
attempting to track the 2.4.x fixes branch (at that time), it was simply
too much work for me, because it wasn't an automated process (so I could
optimise the size of the repository).

You can simply do a

   git svn clone -r1234:HEAD http://....

where r1234 is the revision you want to start from (thus limiting the
amount of history you pull in). Replace r1234 with your own starting
