C:\BitBucket>java -jar svn-migration-scripts.jar verify
svn-migration-scripts: using version 0.1.56bbc7f
Git: using version
Subversion: using version 1.14.0
usage: git init [-q | --quiet] [--bare] [--template=<template-directory>] [--shared[=<permissions>]] [<directory>]
git-svn: ERROR: Unable to determine version.


here's what i got if i checked the versions

C:\BitBucket>git --version

C:\BitBucket>git svn --version

C:\BitBucket>svn --version

If you get a warning about being unable to determine a version, run export LANG=C (*nix) or SET LANG=C (Windows) and try again.
