Subversion commits do have an author assotiated with them as far as I know. The problem is that Git uses another approach (better) for this and when importing a Subversion repository you have to arrange for proper mapping. So, if you don't mind re-importing these repositories read the git-svn- fetch manual about the --authors-file or --authors-prog options; also see  which contains a detailed explanation (if you want to *convert* an svn repo to Git as opposed to just synchronize them, you will also probably want to convert certain remote branches git-svn- fetch creates to git tags and normal local branches; than guide explains this). 1. http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git#ConvertaSVNAliothrepositorytoGit -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
