By default, the basename ("project_of_interest") is used and you
get collisions.

I think this section of the git-svn manpage should help:

| When using multiple --branches or --tags, 'git svn' does not automatically

| 	branches = stable/*:refs/remotes/svn/stable/*
| 	branches = debug/*:refs/remotes/svn/debug/*
