Hi Thomas, thank you for the reply.
I've followed your suggestions and I'm almost there. Using the --tags flag *git
svn clone* correctly creates the repository without replicating the tags
folder and storing the svn tags as branches. Then, following the tutorial
you linked I was able to recreate all the old tags.
Now the issue is that I have no master branch, but all the oldre branches
cloned. Can I just rename the most recent branch and delete the older
branches? Thank you,
