I've got the following problem:

I checked out an GIT-repository created by tortoise-git under windows. German umlauts like "öäü" are shown as \x-Codes under my linux.

That's basically no problem for me, but I want to commit the changesets to an SVn with "git svn dcommit". This command failes because of faulty filenames...

Do you see any possibility to automatically fix them while dcommitting?
