Currently "subgit install –rebuild" always removes and recreates Git repositories even in the case if the original repository was the Git repository.
Instead install should save an option like mainVCS=[svn|git] (default: svn) to conf/subgit.config. The best time to create the option is the moment of the first revision/commit translation, so that even the following scenario will be handled correctly:
$ subgit install svnrepo ...an empty repository is created $ cd my_gitrepo_to_translate $ git push –all /path/to/svnrepo
