Some background: I am testing out migrating an existing SVN repository hosted in Assembla to a Git repository in Bitbucket. I'm using a very small sample project with a couple of tags and no branches as a test case.
While following the Atlassian guide for migrating from SVN to Git, I ran into a problem at the Convert step. I was able to successfully run the git svn clone command with the --stdlayout option. As expected, the tags from the SVN repository are displayed when I run the git branch -r command. However, the tags still do not appear after I run the clean-git command:
java -Dfile.encoding=utf-8 -jar ~/svn-migration-scripts.jar clean-git --force
The above command generates the following output:
After this, running git branch only shows the master branch (which I suppose is expected since I have nothing in the /branches directory), but running git tag returns nothing at all.
I have already tried duplicating the above steps but explicitly providing the trunk, branches, and tags directories to the git svn clone command.
Has anyone had this problem before, and can anyone suggest a remedy?
