Convert Subversion Repo to Git

Create a local empty SVN repo.

svnadmin create /path/to/repo

In the newly created repo cd into hooks/ and create new file named pre-revprop-change and enter the following.


Remember to make the newly created file executable.

chmod +x hooks/pre-revprop-change

Initialise the local repo to point to the SVN.

svnsync init file:///path/to/local/repo https://path/to/online/repo/svn

Sync the two together.

svnsync sync file:///path/to/local/repo

Import the local SVN repo to a newly created Git repo.

git svn clone file:///path/to/local/repo projectname

Create a new Git –bare remote repo and add a remote link to the local repo.

git remote add origin

Push the local repo to the remote.

git push origin master

Bish bosh job done! Your now free of the tiresome Subversion 😀
