Hello I have been using SVN on windows for a while (Tortoise) and now I am trying to switch to git. Since most people in my group are SVN lovers, I was quite happy seeing that I could use git with the existing SVN repository that the rest of the group is using. However I encounter the following problem:
$git svn clone XXXXX -> works fine, I got the whole section of the repository as expected, nice! now I added some file and try to commit it to the SVN repository $git svn dcommit -> here I get an error as follows Committing to XXXXX A test.txt ERROR from SVN: A repository hook failed: Commit blocked by start-commit hook (exit code 1) with output: Your client is too old to commit to this repository. A version 1.5 or later client is required. W: bed0a231def621f00722a4f9444057b7ae81bd9d and refs/remotes/git-svn differ, usi ng rebase: :100644 000000 08cf6101416f0ce0dda3c80e627f333854c4085c 000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000 D test.txt Current branch master is up to date. ERROR: Not all changes have been committed into SVN, however the committed ones (if any) seem to be successfully integrated into the working tree. Please see the above messages for details. After searching around it seems that git svn is using the existing SVN on the system(?) which is quite up to date as I checked (from within git bash): $ svn --version svn, version 1.8.3 (r1516576) compiled Aug 27 2013, 22:13:03 on x86-microsoft-windows Strangly, the svn within git seems to be old, altough my git is also up to date: $ git svn --version git-svn version 220.127.116.11.msysgit.0 (svn 1.4.6) Can anyone guide me in a direction how to update git-svn to at least 1.5? Any help is appreciated. Thanks a lot, Sebastian -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
