SVN Branch to Git master

Hi, I would like to migrate from SVN branch to Git master using SVN mirror. Is is possible to add Subversion URL to SVN Branch and the migration will result in Git master? There are other fields like trunk, branches and tags but in this case all of them will be ommited? (like in this image https://marketplace-cdn.atlassian.com/files/images/org.tmatesoft.subgit.stash-svn-importer/7d2b032f-cc3d-43f9-aac1-01b570e7ae2d_high.png) Is it possible to process migration in this way?

Hi Pawel,

SVN Mirror Add-on 2.0.x requires one to specify all those options: trunk, branches, shelves and tags. However, there's a trick you can use in order to import one single branch:

Specify SVN repository root as 'Subversion URL', interesting branch as 'Trunk' and some non-existing directories as 'Branches' and 'Tags':

Subversion URL: <SVN_REPO_ROOT>

Trunk: branches/foo:refs/heads/master

Branches: git_branches/*:refs/svn_heads/*

Shelves: shelves/*:refs/shelves/*

Tags: git_tags/*:refs/svn_tags/*

Since your Subversion repository doesn't have 'git_branches' and 'git_tags' directories, the plugin imports nothing but 'branches/foo' branch from Subversion repository.

If you'd like to use SVN Mirror to synchronize your Git commits with Subversion repository, I'd recommend you keeping Git history linear, otherwise the plugin sends unknown Git branches to 'shelves/*' directory in SVN repository.

Hope this helps,

Semyon
