Rubyforge svn import

How to do an initial svn import to Rubyforge? Is it possible to use
Darcs instead somehow?

There are some notes on that here:

Nope, not at this time…

Thanks, I looked at that but it isn’t very clear. It’s says nothing of
having branches, tags and trunk for instance. Also, do you setup a
local svn repo first or not? And the import example:

svn import svn+ssh://[email protected]//var/svn/rubyinstaller

doesn’t seem right either --there is no mention of the actual local
directory. How does it know where to get the files?

I’m going to try overlaying the two with darcs under subversion.

Thanks,

Well, I just went for it and it seems to startout okay but then I get:

svn: File already exists: filesystem ‘/var/svn/facets/db’,
transaction ‘26-1’, path ‘trunk’

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Do you already have some files in your repo ? I don’t think you can
remove the repo and start over easily. What you can do is get your
files trough “svn up”, put your new files, mess with “svn add” and
then “svn commit” your changes. Some times you have to “svn up” when
it says there are conflicts (don’t know why, seems buggy but it should
work)

Hm, are you importing from an existing repo? Is that how Svn does it,
or does it expect just a directory tree of files like CVS does?

Just a directory tree of files like CVS.

My last post seemed to have been lost. Oh well. One of the things I had
mentioned was that using darcs+subvversion in the same repo has a
problem which causes darcs to get out of whack becuase subversion is
adding .svn entries into the _darcs control directory. But I think I
figured out the fix. SVN’s global_ignore setting in the
etc/subversion/config file needs a “_darcs” entry added to it --I’m not
sure if it needs to be _darcs or _darcs/* or _darcs/**/* or what exatly
though.

Yup, I’m not sure how much detail to put there… and actually, I’m not
really very svn-savvy, so if anyone wants to give me more material to
put, I’d be happy to post it.

local svn repo first or not?

Hm, I don’t think so.

And the import example:

svn import svn+ssh://[email protected]//var/svn/rubyinstaller

Yup, if the PATH is omitted svn assumes “.”.
