Hi all,

We are planning on migrating our SVN repo to Git/Bitbucket.  I plan to follow the migration guide at .  However, our SVN repo (a single repo) has data from multiple projects which will need to be split into multiple git repos (assuming I am understanding the git usage model correctly).  To that end, I found the following article:

My concern is that git-filter-branch--which is mentioned in the aforementioned article--has warnings about possible silent corruption.  Web searches suggest using git-filter-repo instead.

What is the recommendation by this community?  Have many people seen issues with the use of git-filter-branch?  Should I use git-filter-repo instead?

Thanks in advance,
