I am seeing git svn fetch repeatedly retrieve the same Subversion
revisions when it finds branches in my Subversion repository. We are
using the standard Subversion repository layout, with top level
/trunk, /tags, and /branches directories (and the git repository was
created with 'git svn init -s'). However, the problematic branches are
often copies made from a subdirectory inside of trunk, instead of
The git svn fetch output typically looks something like this:
r2537 = d5b22e956157af036d4112e42e8fb927e45758c8 (trunk) M Enterprise/VC/libgc/SymbolVenue.cpp r2538 = cfed4ca0491da0b732f32bfff72ba678450a0915 (trunk) Found possible branch point: http://repo/prod_repos/trunk/Enterprise/VC => http://repo/prod_repos/branches/file_conversion, 2523 W: Refspec glob conflict (ref: refs/remotes/scripter@832): expected path: branches/scripter@832 real path: trunk/Enterprise/Python Continuing ahead with trunk/Enterprise/Python W: Refspec glob conflict (ref: refs/remotes/trunk): expected path: branches/trunk real path: trunk Continuing ahead with trunk Initializing parent: file_conversion@2523 A gc/QuoteService.cpp A gc/TestSuite.h A gc/quote_svc.pro A gc/QuoteService.h ..... r1 = d349ed8cb2d76596fe2b83224986275be4600fad (QuoteSvcFix442@2698) D gc/FixMessageLogger.h ..... r5 = r19 = r20 = .....
And we are back at revision 1. git svn fetch then
continues to fetch revisions until it reaches the revision that
created the branch.
What am I doing wrong? Is there anyway for me to tell git svn fetch to
not retrieve revisions it has already pulled?
