Has anyone had any success with 'git svn clone' on Windows? I'm new to
git. We've been using subversion and I've been elected to migrate our
existing projects to git. I'm using version 1.7.11-preview20120710 and I'm
following the instructions from *
Everything appears to run successfully until I get to the 'git svn clone'
command. I run the command and I get the 'Initialized empty git
repository' message, but none of the expected progress messages afterward.
I'm just returned to a $ prompt. Any 'git show' or 'git log' always
returns "fatal: bad default revision 'HEAD'". I've made sure I have
svnserve running as a daemon and I'm also putting my pre-revprop-change.bat
file (just "exit 0") in the hooks folder with execute permission. I'm
going mad! I've searched the web and tried many suggestions. Can anyone
save me some time? This is taking way too long. Thanks.
