    Nurses in the United States Army actually started during the Revolutionary War when a general suggested to George Washington that the he needed female nurses "to attend the sick and obey the matron's orders. In July 1775, a plan was submitted to the Second Continental Congress that provided one nurse for every ten patients and provided that a matron be allotted to every hundred sick or wounded".

    Git svn migration is painful when you are not thorough with git in the first place. But your three step conversion is totally idiot proof. A life saver it is. Even though it took me quiet a few days to figure it out completely, in the end it was worth it.
