I think it's better to avoid the Fork button in this case, because forks are
treated specially in the Github UI. In this case you'll want your repo to
appear as a main repo, and not a fork. AFAIK the only way to unfork a repo
is to ask the Github staff to do it.

So instead of forking, use the "+" button on github.com and select
"Import a repository". This supports both git and svn repos.
