Importing History from SVN to Git – Change Committer Information

I’m working on converting some Subversion repositories over to Git using the git–svn tool. I noticed that even though it imports the author information correctly, the committer information does not match the author information (e.g. the committer date is the date/time I ran the git-svn tool). Is there a way to make the committer information […]

Migrating from Googlecode to Github with full revision history

Trying to migrate an SVN project to Github I first followed the following instructions to turn SVN into Git: http://code.google.com/p/support/wiki/ConvertingSvnToGit This worked but I’m unsure what to do next to move from Googlecode to Github. I’ve tried: $ git remote add origin git@github.com:GITHUB_USERNAME/REPO_NAME.git $ git push –all origin (I hope that makes sense because I’m […]

git-svn dcommit from post-commit with Kerberos

I’d like to have git automatically push local changes to the upstream subversion repo when a commit is made. The SVN repo authenticates using Kerberos, so there’s no need to hardcode a password or anything into the commit hook.

git-svn merging between multiple remotes

I have git-svn setup to track two remote svn locations, say http://svnserver/develop/project and http://svnserver/release/project . I also created local branches of the remotes in order to make changes and dcommit to them. However, when I try to merge a change from a local branch of develop to a local branch of release, I get conflicts […]

git-svn from the point of view of a git native user

Are there any tutorials for git-svn from the native git user’s perspective? My new workplace uses svn; I know git, and would like to continue using the branching and rebase workflow I am comfortable with, while eventually committing to svn repos. All of the tutorials for git-svn I can find are from the point of […]

git svn branches in a large repository

I am using “git svn” to interact with a large SVN repo with non-standard branching convention. I see that there are multiple ways to clone the svn repo / branches as pointed out here I am seeing really different behaviors: Say the SVN repo is as follows: http://svn.mycom.com/svn/Project –>trunk –>defects –>uat Production is in “trunk”, […]
