Migrating from TFS to Git

Is it possible to migrate from TFS 2008 to Git, and still preserve all the history, etc?
I’ve seen some references that talk about doing it through SVN, but that seems rather complicated, and complicates my mission to introduce Git at my job.

  • Incremental linearizing of git DAG
  • How can I see incoming commits in git?
  • Why does git checkout <remote_branchname> not create new tracking branch?
  • How to preserve the file permission in git?
  • Empty all previous commits in Git?
  • Git Repository Too Large
  • How to totally suppress Git Clone output?
  • Push existing Git repo to a folder in svn
  • unstaged files gone after git reset --hard
  • GitHub - List commits by author
  • Syncing sftp file system with version control
  • Stuck in a git commit loop

    There is a direct way its called git-tfs and it’s up on github.

    You just do a

      git tfs clone <tfs server> <tfs project>

    I recommend getting the source and adding it to your path separately so that you can debug it for any strangeness, but the code is pretty easy to step through.

    I had a file that was an msi that was 500 MB that the client stored in tfs, that wouldn’t convert, took a few hours to narrow it down.

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
