    git-svn: New flag to emulate empty directories · 40a1530c
    Ray Chen authored
    Adds a --preserve-empty-dirs flag to the clone operation that will detect
    empty directories in the remote Subversion repository and create placeholder
    files in the corresponding local Git directories.  This allows "empty"
    directories to exist in the history of a Git repository.
    
    Also adds the --placeholder-file flag to control the name of any placeholder
    files created.  Default value is ".gitignore".
