2006-09-06 :: HOWTO (partially) subvert Subversion

So, everyone else at ${EMPLOYER} uses svn and you're annoyed with it. Thats tough, since you don't control the server--right?

Enter git-svn, a ticket to much greater revision--handling flexibility.

On Fedora Core 5, one possible install procedure is:

wget http://kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-1.4.2.tar.gz
tar -xf git-1.4.2.tar.gz
cd git-1.4.2
make configure
./configure --prefix=~/opt
make all doc
make install install-doc

Which is only noted since the above procedure results in a git-svn script which is not (yet!) shipped with the Fedora Extras verson of the git packages. The git-svn bits will probably be included in newer Fedora git packages which will render the local build unnecessary.
