We have a large project with several sub-projects all SVN with several
thousand commits, branches, tags, etc., and to allow the development of
the sub-projects to proceed with different teams our main project
references them as externs at fixed revision numbers - we would love to
move over to running GIT but do not wish to loose the history of the
I have been able to figure out that I need to make the externs into
sub-projects but not how to populate them at specific revision numbers
but what we would really like to do would be to create a GIT repository
that replicates the SVN structure and history including creating and
populating the sub-projects at the specified revision number at the
appropriate points in the project history.
Can anybody suggest a good way of going about it?
