How to move a GoogleCode SVN Project to GitHub
I recently moved the django-campaign project from GoogleCode to GitHub. The Repository was converted from SVN to Git during the move. Here is how I've done it:
git svn clone --username <my@email> -A authors.txt --stdlayout \ https://django-campaign.googlecode.com/svn django-campaign cd django-campaign git remote add git+ssh://email@example.com/arneb/django-campaign.git git push -u origin/master
To associate the commits with my GitHub account I created a file
with the following content:
<my@email> = Arne Brodowski <my@email> (no author) = No Author <noauthor@noauthor>
The No Author entry is important, because GoogleCode initializes every Repository with an initial commit which has no author information.
