How best to handle Git Deployment For multiple web servers

I’m transitioning our code base from svn to git. Our current deployment process is to run an in house script that checks out the most recent svn revision into a newly created directory to create a working copy on the server. It then runs any sql commands that need to occur and changes a symlink […]

Git or svn on windows server 2003

I was wondering if anyone has any experience on getting a git server working on windows server 2003? Is there an easy solution to get it up and running? If not is there any good alternatives out there? It ideally has to be free but willing to pay. It is only for a small team […]

A version control system with minimum space requirements on the client side, and is good with binaries

git svn preserve deleted branches

I have noticed that deleted branches in svn is not preserved in git. I know that branches in git and svn is rather different in the way they are processed. However that seems to be dangerous that svn to git cloning looses some information. Is it possible to preserve branches from svn in git that […]

Fork remote SVN repo to git

Apologies if this question is a duplicate, or if I’ve missed something, but in all my searching of the interwebz, I can’t find any information on this. I want to fork someone else’s SVN project, and then turn it into a local git repo (hopefully preserving all of the SVN commits). All the examples I’ve […]

Merging an svn working copy into a git working copy and vise versa?

Circumstances require that I version my own work on a git repo while the “trunk” for the project is on an svn repo, meaning I will regularly need to update my svn working copy and merge its revisions into my git working copy, and vise versa. Is there any easy way to do this in […]
