Hi there
I have started recently to use Git. Since I have been using svn for a 
couple of year I would like to convert those svn repos including their 
history to Git repos. I have converted already some repos, which is 
certainly time-consuming, but it seems to work. Unfortunately, I have now 
one svn repos which I cannot convert. Obviously I had created by accident a 
tags folder with an additional blank at the end. I never noticed all those 
years. svn does not have an issue with this at all. However, when doing a 
"git svn clone" it stop there. Certainly I can rename the tag folder and 
remove the blank, but it will not help, because the rename is somewhere 
later in the history. 
The repos is on a server and I made a dump from it. The dump file can be 
edited and the space removed. I can create another svn repos locally and it 
seem to be created fine.
The first issue I was running into was the newer format. i am using the 
newset subversion (format=4) and git svn does understand only format=2. So 
I was creating a svn repos with the older version and could load again the 
dump successfully to this repos. Unfortunately, I still have problems to to 
clone. Now it report an error "Permission denied: Can't open 
'/tmp/report.tmp' : ..." 

Anyone an idea what to try next? 
Thanks in advance
