Yes that is what I meant. I did the following
1. Make sure the fetch and bare repositories are up to date on the git
git svn rebase --all
git push --mirror
This was on the git-server as a separate task
2. Everything else was on the local
git pull --rebase is done on the local platform.
Someone else does a commit to the svn repository of a change to
The git repository is in between refreshes.
3. On my local platform I update the file README.txt, which was
changed in step 2 on the svn repository.
4. git commit (commit my changes to the local).
5. git upci does the "git svn dcommit"
The git svn dcommit gets the error message.
