1. Set up directories and permissions: mkdir -p /etc/sync2git/projects mkdir -p /var/lib/sync2git chown sync2git /var/lib/sync2git 2. Create a project: mkdir -p /etc/sync2git/projects/myproject cat > /etc/sync2git/projects/myproject/config << EOF SVN_REPO=http://myproject.googlecode.com/svn GIT_REPOemail@example.com:myprofile/myproject.git EOF 3. Set up the authors.txt file: cd /etc/sync2git/projects/myproject svn-authors-extract http://myproject.googlecode.com/svn vi authors.txt When editing the authors.txt file, please remember that you won't be able to amend the mappings again after people start using your git repository to create forks or branches. It is essential to put the full names and email addresses correctly before you make the git mirror available publicly. It is OK to go and add extra records to the file later, for example, if new users are added to SVN. Also, if uploading to a service like github, please use the email addresses that the committers use for their github accounts. This way, the contributors will be recognised properly for their work, as github will convert the name next to each commit to a hyperlink going to the corresponding github user page. 4. Run it manually (optional) sync2git 5. Run it from cron Set up a sync2git user and group on the system to own everything: groupadd -r sync2git useradd -d /var/lib/sync2git -g sync2git -r -s /bin/false sync2git chown -R sync2git.sync2git /var/lib/sync2git Set up a cron job: cat >> /etc/crontab << EOF 0 * * * * sync2git /usr/local/bin/sync2git > /dev/null EOF SVN repository changes URL -------------------------- Disable the cron job before making this change. This only works if there is at least one new commit in SVN. su - sync2git cd /var/lib/sync2git/$PROJECT/svn-clone vi .git/config - comment out old URL, add new URL git svn fetch vi .git/config - uncomment old URL, comment out new URL git svn rebase -l vi .git/config - comment out old URL, uncomment new URL git svn rebase Noew enable the cron job again.
