Migrating from SVN repository with no trunk, branches or tags folders to GIT

I have a project on SourceForge using SVN for maintaining revisions. I didn’t use the standard configuration (trunk, branches, tags). Instead, all was in the main folder (/).

So, to convert it to GIT, we omit the –stdlayout option; the ‘authors.txt’ file contains the project maintainers email addresses.

git svn clone <svn repo url> --no-metadata -A authors.txt ~/temp

We can then submit the GIT repository as is: all the SVN history will be retained.

git remote add origin ssh://USERNAME@git.code.sf.net/PROJECT_GIT_DIRECTORY
git push origin master
