Cloning ruby's svn repo


#1

from
http://blog.emptyway.com/2008/06/19/full-git-clone-of-matz-ruby-subversion-repository/

git svn clone --stdlayout http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby

This takes a long time and collects 300Mb+ of data. Say I just wanted
1.9 or from 1.8.4 to 1.9, how’s that done?

Maybe you can just synchronize (however it’s called in git-speak) with
vladimir’s git repo, he (or his scripts) will do the conversion for
you.
Then IIRC, you can specify starting revision in the command.

http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-svn.html look for
–revision. Now the only thing left is to figure out the starting
revision for 1.8.4.

I don’t known whether is it possible to strip some branches as well.

git svn init --prefix=origin/ --stdlayout
http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos.ruby
git svn etch --all

gonna play with that a bit to see what it brings
