Failed importing code from SVN to GIT – SVN trunk is empty
I try to clone my SVN (assembla) repository to GIT one (bitbucket)
I used bitbucket wizard importing code from SVN to GIT online
But I got the following error:
23:58:39 svn import for: https://subversion.assembla.com/svn/ugisvn/trunk 23:58:39 Checking out https://subversion.assembla.com/svn/ugisvn/trunk... 23:58:40 A elad2109/elad2109/bb_tmp 23:58:40 Exported revision 59. 23:58:40 Done 23:58:40 Subversion checkout successful 23:58:40 Creating new git repository... 23:58:40 Initialized empty Git repository in elad2109/elad2109/bb_tmp/.git/ 23:58:40 Done 23:58:40 Done 23:58:40 # On branch master 23:58:40 # 23:58:40 # Initial commit 23:58:40 # 23:58:40 nothing to commit (create/copy files and use "git add" to track) 23:58:40 Unable to convert svn checkout to git 23:58:40 Svn checkout failed: <class 'bitbucket.apps.async.tasks.ImportException'>: Command failed. Return value: 1
But how can I fix it?
My two problems were solved:
missing Author– I had to verify my registartion email to bitbucket.org
empty trunk– I just gave one higher level of SVN repository

Try using the command line. You must fiddle with your authors file.
Basically for any “No existing author found” you must add a none entry in your authors.txt file
elad2109 = none <email@example.com>
Here’s a good tutorial on manual migration:
I don’t know how Bitbucket’s SVN importer works, but based on
23:58:40 # Initial commit 23:58:40 # 23:58:40 nothing to commit (create/copy files and use "git add" to track) it seems that they have a custom system which uses
git add and commands like that. SVN supports commits which don’t modify any files, whereas normally Git requires each commit to have at least one file. Maybe Bitbucket’s SVN importer can’t handle empty commits correctly.
It might be best to use git-svn to do the import manually – anyways that is needed when importing unstructured SVN repositories which don’t always strictly follow the standard layout. Here are some of my experiences on importing repositories to Git: http://blog.orfjackal.net/search/label/git
