SVN authors mapping
SmartGit does not support Git config
svn.authorsfile, but provides a similar mechanism via system property
smartgit.svn.authorsfile: the specified file is respected when translating SVN revisions to Git commits. For the opposite direction it's the SVN server which chooses the revision author (usually the same as the credentials username). The file format is the same as git-svn's authors file (for
--authors-file option). File encoding is UTF-8 (since version 17.1).

System properties affecting the SVN integration
Following system properties can used to customize the SVN integration:
false to disable the possibility to clone SVN repositories.
true to have SVN connection logging enabled. This will create a connection.log in SmartGit's settings directory which will be helpful for error diagnosis.
For certain SVN repositories, the .gitattributes file may become very large, which would slow down various (Smart)Git operations. For that reason, the mapping of svn:eol-style and svn:mime-type will be disabled if the size of the .gitattributes file exceeds the threshold specified by the specified value (in bytes). For more information, see http://www.syntevo.com/smartgit/documentation.html?page=concepts-svn To have the .gitattributes mapping always enabled, you may set the threshold to a large value.
true to enable recursion into unchanged SVN submodules when a submodule update is performed. This may be useful if you always want to fetch the latest revisions from an SVN repository even if the svn:external which is mapped to .gitsvnextmodules does require fetching these revisions.
false to prevent glueing of multiple revisions together when performing an SVN clone. Glueing revisions together improves performance and usually has no negative side-effects. Sometimes, for large repositories, it may result in out-of-memory errors, though.
true to scan (refresh) SVN sub-modules for non-SVN parent repositories.
This option not officially supported and may be removed in future SmartGit versions.
Use this option to change the default SVN "commit message" when e.g. pushing a tag. There are a couple of variables, which will be replaced by proper strings:
