I dunno, I saw it on a website somewhere and thought it may be what I was looking for.

Well, I'm not on github, I must have gotten that info from github or someone using it. I actually downloaded the entire repo from a svn site using git to work on the code. I find git quite useful that way as I don't always have to be connected to work with it. > > but with no joy. > > > Do I have to use --username on all of my commands? REALLY?

Sorry about that. Wasn't thinking. My os is linux (Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS), git v1.7.1, svn v1.6.6. Hmmmm, seems that I just needed --username on initial fetch. Doesn't ask when I do git svn rebase. A bit confusing. This is my first experience using git-svn. Thanks anyway. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
