I managed to import a cleaner clone with metatags+branches.
tar-gzipped size is 5.5Mb (19Mb non gc`ed)
git svn clone svn://pmwiki.org/pmwiki -T trunk -b branches -t tags
(it does take a while to do this)

It has branches from remotes/tags/pmwiki-2.0.beta1 upto latest.
I did some random checkouts and checked against
pristine same versioned tgz. Seems ok till now.

Please let me know if its useful,
and possibly added to GitHub or any git repo.
