#How I use Git-SVN
I've just realised that all my git and git-svn posts are on the Atlassian Extranet and thus lost to me. So here's a quick re-write of one of them, for Mike Cravey. Please feel free to fork and add your own recommendations or suggestions:
I've never used TortoiseGit and I barely remember Windows CLI (do they still call it DOS?) commands, but you know OSX shizzlit so I'll just write it as I know it and you can translate ;)
I like to clone the whole repo, branches, tags and all. If you're in a rush, do this anyway, then check out just the branch you need right now somewhere else. I find it saves heaps of time and hassle later if you're set up right.
