create a new svn branch with git-svn
- Git gc using excessive memory, unable to complete
- git svn clone of a single directory of SVN repository
- How do I remove fake remote branches I have after migrating from git-svn to git?
- Why git pull for specific folder doesn't work? Which one is better alternative fetch/merge for git pull remote in this case?
- git-svn clone failure, perl.exe failed assertion
- How do I import multiple branch-type directories into git-svn which aren't exclusive children of the same parent?

Say we have a skeleton Subversion repository with empty
/tmp$ git svn clone -s file:///tmp/svn-repo/ git-svn-repo Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/git-svn-repo/.git/ r1 = 80bdcfc0cf248b74b914a1b5f99ab89fb4e31b6c (refs/remotes/trunk) Checked out HEAD: file:///tmp/svn-repo/trunk r1 /tmp$ cd git-svn-repo/ /tmp/git-svn-repo$ git svn branch my-branch Copying file:///tmp/svn-repo/trunk at r1 to file:///tmp/svn-repo/branches/my-branch... Found possible branch point: file:///tmp/svn-repo/trunk => file:///tmp/svn-repo/branches/my-branch, 1 Found branch parent: (refs/remotes/my-branch) 80bdcfc0cf248b74b914a1b5f99ab89fb4e31b6c Following parent with do_switch Successfully followed parent r2 = 56150bbd9d3aec94972ff46d030e30ec726595ab (refs/remotes/my-branch)
The explanation below will switch back-and-forth between two views of the same repository, a Subversion working copy of the entire repo (not just
trunk) and a
git-svn clone. For clarity, each shell prompt’s prefix will indicate the current directory.
On the svn side, you’ll now see
/tmp/svn-repo-wc$ svn up A branches/my-branch Updated to revision 2.
You’ll also see the new branch on the git side:
/tmp/git-svn-repo$ git branch -r my-branch trunk
To commit to the newly created branch, first switch to it:
/tmp/git-svn-repo$ git reset --hard remotes/my-branch HEAD is now at 2c9bef2 Create branch my-branch
Next, we’ll create a dummy git commit
/tmp/git-svn-repo$ touch on-my-branch /tmp/git-svn-repo$ git add on-my-branch /tmp/git-svn-repo$ git commit -m 'First commit to my-branch' [master b94a0eb] First commit to my-branch 0 files changed, 0 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-) create mode 100644 on-my-branch
and finally send it to Subversion:
/tmp/git-svn-repo$ git svn dcommit Committing to file:///tmp/svn-repo/branches/my-branch ... A on-my-branch Committed r3 A on-my-branch r3 = d3c5ba3e03e5cdee96f470ff4c9898eb7c523ed8 (refs/remotes/my-branch) No changes between current HEAD and refs/remotes/my-branch Resetting to the latest refs/remotes/my-branch
The Subversion working-copy gives us confirmation:
/tmp/svn-repo-wc$ svn up A branches/my-branch/on-my-branch Updated to revision 3.
