Create a master git repository for multiple git-svn repositories

I have a project which consists of several services, each in their own SVN repository and a build script that checks out each SVN repository as a folder in a single /project directory along with a /project level Makefile to recursively build the whole project. Visually it looks something like this: /project Makefile /service1 # […]

BitBucket colored diff email service

Does anyone know about anyway to send out colored diffs of commits in bitbucket? I reckon you can do that by pushing out a HTTP call to your own server, but I need a solution in case you do not have your own server to rely on. I am a big fan of SVN::Notify, so […]

git not receiving post commit results from svn server

I’m using git to commit to an svn server, which has a post commit hook. This post commit hook is supposed to return some text to the client. The hook works fine when I use pure svn, but git svn does not display the text. Googling around, I have been unable to find any details […]

It possible to import all of the WordPress SVN commits, branches and tags, but merge these with any we’ve made in our repo. For example […]

merging two git repositories, one a git-cvs clone, one git-svn clone

I am using code from a CVS controlled repository (@sourceforge). Instead of using it directly, I was using a git clone of it made by someone else. In my clone I have several modifications. In the meantime the upstream project has switched to SVN (@googlecode). I was able to create an automatically updated git clone […]

git-svn: ignore case of svn usernames from authorsfile?

I’m tracking a svn repository using git-svn and have an authorsfile to get real names for the committers. svn doesn’t seem to care about the casing of usernames — there are commits with username variations like username, Username and UserName which definitely belong to the same committer. Unfortunately git-svn respects casing, so I have to […]

svn or git or something else?

Our team is developing a game. I’d like to try separate prototype which is based on our code but will slightly be different. We use svn for code repository. Now for my own prototype, how should I set up a repo so that I can keep updates from the svn but won’t let me commit […]

When converting to git, how should I handle a single directory svn checkout?

I am soon going to be converting my part of an application from using an svn backed repository to using git one. I’ve previously used git-svn, but the whole team is being moved to git and I’ve been asked to be in the vanguard of that move. Although I’m happy I understand how do do […]
