    Migrating a repo from SVN to Git on Ubuntu

    Hello everyone,

    I need to migrate a repo (including releases) from SVN to Git. I found out that a tool called svn2git does just that. It's wrapped in ruby and installed with rubygems; here's what I get when I do it:

    Code:
    $ sudo gem install svn2git
    Successfully installed svn2git-2.2.2
    1 gem installed
    Installing ri documentation for svn2git-2.2.2...
    Installing RDoc documentation for svn2git-2.2.2...
    But when I try to use it I get a load of errors:

    Code:
    $ svn2git
    /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/1.8/rubygems/dependency.rb:247:in to_specs': Could not find svn2git (>= 0) amongst [actionmailer-3.2.1, actionmailer-3.1.0, actionpack-3.2.1, actionpack-3.1.0, activemodel-3.2.1, activemodel-3.1.0, activerecord-3.2.1, activerecord-3.1.0, activeresource-3.2.1, activeresource-3.1.0, activesupport-3.2.1, activesupport-3.1.0, ansi-1.4.2, ansi-1.3.0, arel-3.0.2, arel-2.2.1, bcrypt-ruby-3.0.1, best_in_place-1.0.6, blankslate-3.1.2, builder-3.0.0, bundler-1.0.18, client_side_validations-3.1.4, coderay-1.0.6, coderay-1.0.5, coffee-rails-3.2.2, coffee-rails-3.1.1, coffee-script-2.2.0, coffee-script-source-1.3.1, coffee-script-source-1.1.2, erubis-2.7.0, execjs-1.3.0, execjs-1.2.9, execjs-1.2.8, execjs-1.2.6, ffi-1.0.11, hike-1.2.1, i18n-0.6.0, journey-1.0.3, jquery-rails-2.0.2, jquery-rails-1.0.14, json-1.6.6, json-1.6.1, libv8-3.3.10.4-x86_64-linux, mail-2.4.4, mail-2.3.0, method_source-0.7.1, method_source-0.7.0, mime-types-1.18, mime-types-1.16, multi_json-1.3.2, multi_json-1.0.3, pg-0.13.2, pg-0.12.2, pg-0.11.0, polyglot-0.3.3, polyglot-0.3.2, postgres-pr-0.6.3, pry-0.9.9.2, pry-0.9.8.1, puma-1.6.3, rack-1.4.1, rack-1.3.4, rack-1.3.3, rack-cache-1.2, rack-cache-1.0.3, rack-mount-0.8.3, rack-ssl-1.3.2, rack-test-0.6.1, railroady-1.0.7, railroady-1.0.2, rails-3.2.1, rails-3.1.0, railties-3.2.1, railties-3.1.0, rake-0.9.2.2, rake-0.9.2, rdoc-3.12, rdoc-3.10, rdoc-3.9.4, rubypython-0.6.2, sass-3.1.15, sass-3.1.10, sass-3.1.8, sass-3.1.7, sass-rails-3.2.5, sass-rails-3.1.4, sass-rails-3.1.2, simple_form-2.0.1, simple_form-1.5.2, slop-2.4.4, slop-2.4.3, sprockets-2.1.2, sprockets-2.0.2, sprockets-2.0.0, sqlite3-1.3.6, sqlite3-1.3.4, therubyracer-0.10.1, therubyracer-0.9.9, thor-0.14.6, tilt-1.3.3, treetop-1.4.10, turn-0.9.5, turn-0.8.3, turn-0.8.2, tzinfo-0.3.33, tzinfo-0.3.30, tzinfo-0.3.29, uglifier-1.2.4, uglifier-1.0.3] (Gem::LoadError)

    from /usr/local/bin/svn2git:18
    Can anyone help deciphering the cause of these errors? Or maybe suggest an alternative way to migrate a SVN repo to Git?

    Thanks.

    unfortunately I can't help with the ruby problem
    have you tried git-svn? It works very well for me and it is packaged in ubuntu.

    Hi MadCow, I´ve fideled around with git-svn, but the svn tags are always lost. The best I can do is to import the tag folders, which replicates a lot of code. That's why I tried svn2git, since it claims it can deal with tags. Other suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

    It took a good deal of searching and enquiring, but I finally got to a recipe that does what I need. The issue here is that git svn clone doesn't deal with tags by default, but it can eventually do the job. Read the full recipe at my blog.

    Thank you for the help.
