I've been keeping my home directory in Subversion for about 5 years now, and I am now interested in switching over to git. I'll be breaking up a single massive svn repository into a collection of smaller repositories, corresponding to subdirectories of the original repository. I've determined that using git-svn clone, I can clone any subdirectory I want into its own repository.
I had a couple questions though: 1. Some subdirectories have a quite long revision history. If, in the future, I find myself checking out onto a low-bandwith computer, or space-limited computer, or I just don't want the whole revision history for some reason, I can use "git clone --depth" to get a history horizon on the git repository. The docs say that if I do this, then I can't push from (or pull from) the shallow repository. However my tests indicate otherwise. What's the real restriction? Do I just have to make sure both branches involved in the push operation have history that goes back to the point where they diverge, or is something else going on here? 2. A couple of my subdirectory repositories have subdirectories that should themselves be omitted (or split off into directories of their own). Is there some way to filter out these subdirectories when doing the conversion or to filter them out immediately afterward? --Ken -- Ken (Chanoch) Bloom. PhD candidate.
