Twig’s Tech Tips

This was a challenging one, and I ran into a few problems attempting to move DCX over from GoogleCode to GitHub. Usernames on Google Code are email messages. When you bring them over, your commit text messages are full of possibly private email addresses that your committers don’t want to talk about with the world (well, it’s mostly spambots that they don’t want to share with).

Windows. If you are trying to do this on Windows, forget it. Save yourself the hassle and grab Linuxmint, Ubuntu, or whichever you like and run it in Virtualbox flavor. It won’t set you back anything and takes less than an hour to download and install. The time spent establishing Linux will be really worth it in comparison to trying to finish Some of this on Windows. Seriously, don’t combat Windows. It wasn’t designed to work there.

Find your terminal and make yourself a folder to work with. This is where all your magic will happen. We’ll need to install a couple of things. Enter your password when prompted. I don’t think I have to describe why subversion and git are essential. SVN data into a format it can understand.

It also sorts arranges the SVN branches into git branches. The tool tip is VERY useful for checking your changes as they stand after tugging the repository into your personal computer (and before pushing it onto GitHub). This one is straight from John Albin’s handbag of tricks and it’s really a real winner!

It fetches all the usernames from commit text messages, sorts, removes duplicates and saves these to a file called “authors.txt”. Keep the still left column as is, but feel absolve to change the right column. The name and email on the right will be utilized in the git history. All the changes are finished Once, save and close. Because Google doesn’t allow shell usage of the SVN repository, you can’t simply dump and copy the files out. What we have to do is use git-svn and draw them out using SVN and save it in git.

Depending on how big your repository is, this may have a while. The “trunk” is currently called “master” branch in git. This is your stable route. Type “tig” to see what’s going on, and if the usernames were migrated correctly. Select the commit (arrow keys) and open the commit details with the Enter button.

If you’re pleased with how it is, time for you to drive it into GitHub! In the event that you run into errors, please follow the given information on both of these web pages to help troubleshoot your woes. Once it’s ready to go, you can link GitHub to your neighborhood git repository. To surmise what just occurred.

We added a “remote” location directing to your GitHub task and called it “origin” as this is your new home. You fetch the existing information regarding it and then merge in the origin’s master branch into your master branch, melding the gits repository with the GitHub repository. As soon as that’s done, we force all our existing documents from gits into the empty repository at origins (GitHub).

This again should take some time. For many people, this should be enough. SVN branches aren’t done yet! If you use SVN branches, then they’re not in GitHub yet! Now, for the mind-twisting bit and training the human brain just a little about Subversion branches and git branches. Switching the branch means that git will delete any data files specific to “get better at” and revive any files from “dcxutf”, along with any changes to documents shared to both branches.

It’s fast and simple. Use this again to check if the revision background and changes were migrated properly. Then, finally pushing the branch upstream into the origin (GitHub). Continue doing this process for just about any branches you wish to keep. Ensure that everything has been pushed into GitHub. Browse your project page a little and you can see things show up instantly.
