I guess Andrew was looking for specific instructions.  Install git
and git-svn.  For Debian stable, you can get them from

Initialize the repository:

    git-svn init http://svn.foo.org/project/trunk

Fetch versions from SVN:

    git-svn fetch

I think the fetch can be run periodically from a cron job.  The
repository can be cloned via HTTP but it's much faster to use the
git server which runs on it's own TCP port.
