What are the downsides to using the official Windows Git binaries from cygwin?

Cygwin’s latest git, svn and git-svn combination is stuck at old versions that have numerous git-svn bugs. I’m considering just downloading the official windows version (warning: this will start the a download: http://git-scm.com/download/win ), putting that in my path, and calling those binaries from Cygwin. What are the downsides to this?

Why does git-svn clone set 'master' to a random branch?

I’m trying to move our existing svn repository to git. We don’t need to do any syncing between the two (so no git svn fetches or dcommits) — we’re just moving over and that’s it. I issued this command to create the git repository: git svn clone -s https://server/repos/my_repo This ran fine. However, when I […]

Is anyone use Activecollab with Git or Hg?

We currently use activecollab with subversion, but we want to consider using Git or Hg to give us distributed source control. Is anyone making this work, so that revisions can be linked to tickets in activecollab, just as they are for SVN?

after rebasing on a branch, how to update master to match that rebased branch?

I’ve done a bunch of rebasing on a test GIT branch. The rebasing was done for two reasons: #1: to integrate changes in a parent git-svn trunk; #2: to clean up my local history in preparation for handing off the code to another developer. I have my test branch the way I want it, all […]

Why does 'git' work, but 'git-svn' does not, and how do I fix it?

I am using 64-bit Windows 7 with git 1.8.3.msysgit.0 installed. The command git works fine, from wherever: PS C:\dev> git –version git version 1.8.3.msysgit.0 However, the command git-svn does not: PS C:\dev> git-svn The term ‘git-svn’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of […]

How to find empty branches and tags in git

I’ve migrated a big svn repository with hundreds of branches and tags, split them into multiple repositories and now i’m looking to check if there are any empty branches/tags in these repositories that should be deleted before pushing the migration live. Is there a faster way to find this than having to go to every […]

'git svn' does not start git-svn any more

On my linux system (Centos 5.9) ‘git svn‘ stopped working and I don’t know why and how. output is: $ git svn git: ‘svn’ is not a git command. See ‘git –help’. /usr/libexec/git-core/git-svn exists and is fully working ( I can start it manually). And all other git sub commands seem to work (at least […]

No longer track branches with git-svn

I have cloned a svn branch using git-svn and am tracking all folders and branches. I would like to drop everything and only track web/trunk/* (for rebase, dcommit, etc.) Is there any way to do this without reinitializing the repository?

Changing remote tracking branches in git(-svn) after clone with restricted branches

When restricting remote branches to a list of 2 or three (editing the .git/config as seen in {^1}), refetching, carbage collectioning and cleaning all “refs” directories I still get a full list of all remote branches with git branch -avv {^2} I expected to see v2 and v3 only as branches in the list of […]
