Sourcetree: git svn fetch from SVN repo


I am trying to access a SVN repo from within Sourctree, so that I can keep a git branch in sync with the svn repo, like so:

From the admin of the SVN repo I received a certificate. I can access the repo from a browser (where I added the certificate) and from Cornerstone, a SVN client.

I added the remote repo in Sourcetree. If try to fetch the remote from Sourcetree, I get the following

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree fetch myproject 
fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 403
Completed with errors, see above

I tried a

git svn fetch

from the terminal window, and I got this reply:

Client certificate filename:

Typing in the certificate filename gives no result, the terminal keeps asking for the certificate filename

The certificate is in the keychain, I checked that.

Or should it be placed in a different location?

Git version is 1.9.2 (System) and (embedded)

Tried both versions, makes no difference.

SVN is version 1.7.10


What could this be and how could I solve this?

OK, found it. When prompted for the certificate filename, you'll need to provide the full path.

From then on it works.
