Skip to main content Subversion to Git migration

I'm still at renaming libSpiff to libxspf and as part of that I also decided to move from Subversion to Git. In case anybody plans to do similar here is what I did:

  1. Get a shell account at and write access to /var/www/
  2. Run a few commands only my local shell:
# Fetch old repository
echo "EdSchouten = Ed Schouten <protected>" \
    >> libspiff_authors
echo "hartwork = Sebastian Pipping <protected>" \
    >> libspiff_authors
git svn clone\
svnroot/libspiff --stdlayout \

# Build new bare/remote repository
git clone --bare libspiff libxspf.git
echo "Official libxspf repository" \
    > libxspf.git/description
touch libxspf.git/git-daemon-export-ok

# Upload it
rsync -avz libxspf.git/*\

More on libSpiff/libxspf later.
