= Overview This is a full git mirror of Matz' Ruby Subversion repository. It contains *FULL* MRI history, right from the revision 1, including most branches and all tags. Currently, the repository is updated manually but quite often so that the changes are at most a few days old. This repository is supposed to be used as any other read-only GIT repository, with periodic pulls or fetches. Do *not* use git svn command on your clone, there is no need. = Branches The master branch of this repository is intentionally empty and contains only this README. Once you've cloned the repo, invoke 'git branch -a' to see a list of all available branches or invoke 'git tag -l ' to see a list of all available tags. Then just create a local branch to track the remote branch: git checkout -b trunk origin/trunk All you have to do now is invoking 'git pull' from time to time to get the latest updates in your branch. *NOTE*: If the tags in your repo are not being updated over time and you don't see newer tags, invoke 'git fetch -t', this will force git go fetch all currently available tags. Most interesting branches: * trunk - The current development branch (1.9 dev) * ruby_1_8 - 1.8.* series dev line * ruby_1_8_7 - 1.8.7 maint line (bugfixes only) * ruby_1_8_6 - 1.8.6 maint line (bugfixes only) Typically, the changes are first done on trunk, and then they are backported to ruby_1_8, and picked up by maintainers and further backported to ruby_1_8_7 and in some cases even to ruby_1_8_6. Clearly, you could also switch to any other branch of your interest, including ALL patchlevel tags. = Converting to git-svn repository If you really wish to have you local clone to be a full "git-svn repository" (so that you could fetch the data from the main repository yourself), it also can be done, by doing so: git svn init --prefix=origin/ --stdlayout \ http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby (this assumes that the remote repo is known in your local clone as "origin") git svn fetch --all It would take a while to update all the branches (1-2 hours), but still much, much faster than cloning the Ruby subversion repository from scratch (which would take 12-15 hours). Enjoy!
