Can I use a GIT repository with SVN clients?

Currently I’m using the following SVN clients: TortoiseSVN for Windows and AnkhSVN for Visual Studio 2005+. I heard that GIT has a great level of interoperability with SVN. Would my tools work with a GIT repository?

  • AnkhSVN Commits Are Very Slow
  • Pending changes in AnkhSVN only shows files from current solution
  • How do I reconfigure VisualSVN server from Copy-Modify-Merge to Lock-Modify-Unlock?
  • Resharper and TortoiseSVN
  • AnkhSVN client side pre-commit hook
  • Can You Use AnkhSVN and VisualSVN at the Same Time?
  • Can I add a git remote for all users?
  • git rm -f after add, before commit, on windows cmd line. Was open earlier in STS (Eclipse). Can recover?
  • Print percentage of dissimilarity
  • Unable to `git submodule foreach git pull`
  • pushing to gihub error using Rails
  • Disable -m in git

    Nope. Use the git client. Git is more complex than SVN and has a very different structure. has read/write support for SVN clients to their Git hosted repositories:

    You can checkout a git repository but you can’t do most of other operations. You can setup tortoise git which provides same interface for Git although the commands are different.
