Revision as of 15:12, 19 December 2012

This tutorial collects information for users of git as svn client, using git-svn. Please consider reading GitSvnCrashCourse, and the git-svn cheatsheet. As Git is distributed, commits (aka change sets) are referenced by hashes instead of svn's serial version numbers. Git tracks contents, not files or directories. Consider to use a real svn client to rename directories, as git-svn produces a lot of renames in svn, instead of one like the original.

Contents


checkout / clone, log

git svn clone -r 400:HEAD https://mysvnsrv.org/rep/trunk folder # choose a recent commit
git log -5
git status
git svn info
git config --list

Create a .gitignore file on the toplevel to replicate svn's ignore properties.

echo "folder/or/file/to/ignore" > .gitignore

commit

commit to local Git

Git automatically tracks contents and therefor automatically detects all changes done with file browsers, programming tools etc.

git diff
git add --all
git diff --cached
git commit -m "whatebber"

commit to remote SVN

To see what is going to be committed one can choose the following options.

gitk git-svn..
gitk
git log remotes/git-svn.. --oneline
git svn dcommit --dry-run

To really commit

git svn dcommit

undo changes

Undo (backout, revert) changes and commits is done with standard git commands.

Things already committed to svn can be reverted:

git revert <hash>
git svn dcommit

Things in the working tree can be reset (reverted) to what is checked in:

git reset --hard

workflow with quickly setting away your main work and do a quick fix

git svn clone https://mysvnsrv.org/rep
git checkout -b bugfix-id-123
... hack, hack, hack ...
git stash "main work, save it for the moment"
git stash list
... hack on quick fix ...
git commit -m "qick fix"
git dcommit
git stash pop
... continue hack, hack, hack ...

workflow with local fix/feature branch

git svn clone https://mysvnsrv.org/rep
git checkout -b bugfix-id-123
<hack, hack, hack>
git add --all
git commit -m "fixed issue 123"
git checkout master
git svn rebase
git merge bugfix-id-123
git svn dcommit
