Please respond directly to sabbahil...@gmail.com as I do not have time to follow this mailing list.
I am attempting to set up a git repository based on an svn repository. The idea would be that the members of the project would be able to use git exclusively with the central git repository acting as the coordinator. This git server would be the only one capable of issuing the git svn dcommit and git svn rebase and the members of the project would not have to worry about it. Eventually, the subversion repository would be transferred to git. I created a separate Ubuntu VM in order to set up the git repository. I used "git svn clone -s" to set up MyProject.git on "gitserver" The command "git branch -a" shows * master remotes/branch1 remotes/branch2 remotes/trunk I then went to my main VM and used ssh to clone the repository git clone gitserver:/opt/git/MyProject cd MyProject git branch -a * master remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master remotes/origin/master How do I check out the trunk or appropriate branches from the remote? I am probably misreading the documentation. Would it be git checkout -b branch1 does the master on the remote (and here) actually point to the trunk by default? should I checkout the branches on "gitserver"? I also do not see how I can get the list of branches from the remote location.without having to do an ssh into the gitserver, cd to the repository directory, and use a 'branch -a' there. Is there a way to ask for this information? I have not yet been successful in setting up gitosis yet because this is on an internal company intranet and I do not have a valid machine name for my accounts as everything is being done on VMs. Thus, my public key ends with "sabbahillel@desktop- ubuntu" rather than an actual machine name or address. Would you have a pointer to a HOW-TO that discusses this. Thanks for any help that you can give me. -- Sabba - סבא הלל - Hillel Hillel (Sabba) Markowitz | Said the fox to the fish, "Join me ashore" sabbahil...@gmail.com | The fish are the Jews, Torah is our water http://sabbahillel.blogspot.com -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
