Dear ladies and sirs.
We use SVN as our VCS, but wish to migrate to git. All is good, but a
few months ago our SVN server had a serious RAID problems (so much
that it became unusable) plus at the same day no IT person was
available to restore the repository from the backups. So, we have
setup a temporary SVN server on a certain workstation from the most
recent version that we had. The net result is:
1. We have a few months of work on the temporary SVN server (the
revisions there start from 1, of course)
2. There is a new VCS server machine with the pre-crash SVN
repository restored there, but no one uses it yet, because someone has
to merge the temporary repository there somehow and no one has the
3. In addition, we want to migrate to git, because SVN is just too
much pain to work with - merges are killing us.
Can anyone advice on the best process to end up with a git repository,
which would contain the old SVN repository merged with the temporary
BTW, the new VCS server is a linux machine.
Thanks a lot in advance.
