setting up git for a simple use

I have used SVN for years and finally am going to switch to git. I don’t understand how to do simple changes and the documentation is a bit confusing to me. I have set up a repository in a folder called dev/ and I want to have another folder called live/ where I can update […]

VCS for a development, testing, production environment

I’m looking at several VC systems and wondering what suits my needs better. Right now, I have the following: My local machine (Win7) where I code with php with the PhpStorm. A Debian Linux machine set up in my internal network. A Debian Linux dedicated web server. Ideally, I wan’t to code in this machine, […]

Git branches not merged after switching from svn

I used subgit to transform an old svn repository to git (including full history, branches, tags). After some initial trouble I got it working and it worked almost perfectly. Except branches doesn’t seem to be merged back to the trunk/master branch: As you can see, git knows that I branched the green master to get […]

Svn update vs git pull – implementation details

How actually svn up is performed? Does it get diffs from server and apply em, or server just sends last version of a file (is it compressed?) which then merged with my local file? I ask because afaik, in git each file revision is a blob, so i expect that when i perform git pull […]

git svn clone creates empty git repository?

I’m trying to use this command to pull the last 100 revisions from an SVN repo into a local git repo (on Windows). git svn clone http://… -r 100 For some reason, the resulting checkout is empty other than the .git folder. But without the -r parameter it works fine (although checks out everything since […]

We use SVN in our company. My whole team wants us to deploy by copying everything, everytime

The current deployment process entails that we only move the differences between the current SVN revision and the SVN revision of the last deployment, which works flawlessly in my project. Other projects complain from this method and want to deploy everything, move every file from the development environment to other environments like testing, staging, or […]

Version Control Recommendations

What version control system(s) do people recommend for managing a large set of mostly binary files? The set contains several thousand files, totalling about 8GB and will be growing over time. We tried GIT and found it was somewhat slow doing that many binary comparisons. Maybe we’ve configured something wrong?

git-svn and unfortunate svn pre-commit hooks

I have a git repository with about 30 revisions that I want to import into an existing SVN repository. Unfortunately the SVN repository has a bunch of pre-commit hooks requiring certain information in commit messages, certain SVN keywords in certain file types, and so on. None of these are really relevant to to the stuff […]
