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
