These days, we migrated our SVN server to a cloud VM, and one of the needed tasks is to switch also my GIT repositories.
An easy approach is to rebuild them, but it has one major drawback: it is possible only if your GIT repositories don’t include uncommitted revisions. In these cases, you will lose them all.
Since I have several unaligned GITs, I needed to look for a different approach. After a short research, I reached this page.
The solution process is very simple:
- edit config file in the .git folder.
- add/update the below entries in the section [svn-remote “svn”]:
url = <new server URL> rewriteRoot = <old server URL>
Then you are ready for your first dcommit.
