Yes, my git repository of the AOO/OOo history [1] also contains the 
import of the then available latest OOo-SVN repo. The old OOo project 
only used SVN from 2008 to 2009 and though the SVN repo had imported a 
few CVS branches the most interesting ones (e.g. all the CVS 
child-workspace branches where the actual development happened between 
2003-2008) were dropped during that import and due to the way things 
were merged many interesting commit details were dropped too.

These interesting parts of the old OOo-CVS history were also recovered 
and put into my git repo. The 2009-2011 code history in Mercurial and 
the 2011-2014/01 AOO history are also included. For more details please 
see my last year's FOSDEM presentation [2].

It should already be there, but somebody please check it with some 
samples. For a more complete history the bit git repo should be updated 
with the latest AOO progress. And the mercurial import could be redone 
with hg-hash annotations enabled too.

Hope that helps,
