Hi Graham, It sounds like you should just have a go at it :) I would first start off with learning some Git basics. Don't go into git-svn before you know Git a good bit. Quick intro: http://www.spheredev.org/wiki/Git_for_the_lazy Reference: http://progit.org/book/ Now, when you feel you're

Hi Graham, I think you're saying, that you don't need to do any git svn dcommit in your git-svn clone. This sounds like the Git repo is a pure read only mirror of the Subversion project. Such a setup is quite straight-forward and won't give any problems. However, as far as I understand, you

[git-users] Blame file execution permissions

2011-01-02 Thread Julien Nicoulaud
Hi all, in a repository with multiple collaborators we have a file that should not be executable, and someone keeps making it executable, certainly due to its editor configuration. Is there some way to blame the file for its execution permissions (and its permissions in general) ? Also, is there
