Here's a quick version with the SVN trunk:

    $ git clone http://www.iki.fi/tlikonen/voikko.git

If you want SVN branches and tags (which are actually branches too) I
can push them later. In case you want to experiment with splitting the
repository you could, for example try this:

    $ git filter-branch --subdirectory-filter libvoikko
