I am migrating my svn repository to git with the follow toturial:
After migrating the first project, I noticed that the root of git is the trunk (master) and all the files I had above it were not migrated.
These files are important, did contain documentation, files needed for the environment, test cases, scripts and other auxiliaries. They are all common for trunk, branch and tags and are too large to be cloned often.
Ever had any similar problem? There is some suggestion of where to put these files?
Git and the git-svn tools can be pretty opinionated. It is generally assumed that nothing is above trunk/ tags/ or branches/ in your repo heirarcy. If you want the items above it, you'll probably want to git-svn clone just the files above trunk into their own repository, then graft the two repositories together, placing those files inside a directory in your repo, or leaving them out on their own.
I found a post explaining how to do this over at Stack Overflow:
I also found this one, which seems to have a bit more detail: http://ben.straubnet.net/post/939181602/git-grafting-repositories
