Is it possible to create branches of git subtrees while maintaining parent repo structure?

We are looking to put sub-projects within a Git repository. The repo, i.e. ParentRepo, will need to sync with our private server, and then a few subdirectories will need to also push to a company github repo and pull from upstream github repos. We also need the ability to make branches from those subdirectories (not […]

Oddly formatted SVN repo to Git

I’m working to port an extremely old svn repo that, unfortunately, was made in a non-standard way.

Does git have an equivalent for the bazaar automv plugin?

The only distributed revision control system I’ve used on my projects is bazaar. I don’t know much about git and mercurial except how to do checkouts. The reason I like bazaar is the automv plugin.
