#
# $:./svn-to-git.sh new-repo-name http://user@server/repo/
BARE_REPO_NAME="$1"
SVN_PATH="$2"
cd ~/

cd ~/$BARE_REPO_NAME.git
git symbolic-ref HEAD refs/heads/trunk
# Clone the Subversion repository using git-svn
cd ~/
git svn clone $SVN_PATH --no-metadata -A authors-transform.txt --stdlayout ~/temp
# Convert svn:ignore properties to .gitignore
cd ~/temp
git svn show-ignore > .gitignore
git add .gitignore
