README ====== git-me-up was written to automate the creation of a local git repo for a Rails app that is hosted in Subversion. It should work equally well for non Rails projects. In a nutshell, this is what it does: - Clones the latest version of the source (by default skipping the history for performance reasons) into a new local Git repository. - Recreates empty directories (that git chooses to ignore), but that your app might need. - Converts any svn:ignore Subversion properties into entries in your .git/info/exclude file. - Checks for Rails plugins installed via svn:externals and clones them into their own git repositories (located in a new directory called ./plugins, relative to your working directory). Each external plugin is symlinked into vendor/plugins. Git is then instructed to ignore them so that it doesn't attempt to commit the symlink back into Subversion. - Creates a local working branch (called "work" by default; override it by setting the BRANCH environement variable). All this happens in a manner that avoids adding Git metadata (such as .gitignore files) to your subversion repository. INSTALL ======= To install git-me-up into /usr/local/bin, run: $ sudo make install You will need to install git-svn before you can use git-me-up. USAGE ===== You need to specify two arguments; the Subversion repo that you will be checking back into, and the path (relative to your current directory) of the Git repository that you'd like to create. For example: $ git-me-up http://svn.mydomain.com/repo/project/trunk project By default git-me-up will pull the latest version of your code from Subversion, ignoring all the history. If you want to override the revision pulled, set the REVISION environment variable, like this: $ REVISION=123:HEAD http://svn.mydomain.com/repo/project/trunk project See the coverage of the -r option in the git-svn(1) man page for more examples of how to specify the revision. Give it a whirl. If you don't like it, delete your local directory. No harm done...
