Migration git/stash fails on spaces in tag name

Hello,

I'm preparing a migration from svn to git/stash using the guide from

https://www.atlassian.com/git/migration

I've converted almost all projects however 1 project keeps failing on an space character in de tags name:

Given the repository /svn/test/tags/release 1.0/

I get an error with git svn clone command:

Malformed network data: Unable to parse URL '/svn/dev/!svn/bc/32096/test/tags/release 1.0/' at /usr/lib/git-core/git-svn line 2175

any pointer on howto tackle this would be appreciated!

Kind regards

Rik Ribbers

After upgrading to subversion 1.7.9 the problem is fixed.

[update] The upgrade was done on the migration machine (where the git svn commands are executed)

Hi Rik,

Thank you for your quesiton.

In order to accomplish the command successfully, I would kindly ask you to replace .../release 1.0/ with

.../release%201.0/

Kind regards,
Rafael


Hello Rafael,

Due to some other (project) priorities I didn't had the time to look into this problem until now....

I removed the space from the release, hower it remains in the SVN history.... so it still fails when migrating the repository.

I could migrate without the history, but that is not what we want...

Did some more digging, seems like we have to deal with a bug in subversion.

We are going to upgrade subversion and test it again.....
