I've forwarded the error part of this to the larger git mailing list, but I
have some PEBKAC issues that I'd like to hash out in a smaller forum...
The command I used is this:
> /usr/local/git/bin/git svn clone https://[server]/svn -A svn.authorsfile
> --stdlayout --no-metadata
>From further reading, I realize that --no-metadata is probably a bad idea.
The repo I'm trying to copy has a number of branches, 20+ are things like 3.10,
3.12.2, etc - unique numbers, but not necessarily consecutive ones. There are
also ~5 named ones.
In any case, the error I'm getting is:
> Found possible branch point: https://[server]/svn/trunk =>
> https://[server]/svn/branches/interface-controller-redesign, 11611
In looking at the repo from Versions (Mac SVN client), I can see that there was
a branch created as a copy of the trunk, at
/branches/interface-controller-redesign, which was deleted roughly two months
later when the redesign was finished and rolled back into the trunk.
Any suggestions on how to handle this?
