We use SVN as our VCS, but wish to migrate to git. All is good, but a few months ago our SVN server had a serious RAID problems (so much that it became unusable) plus at the same day no IT person was available to restore the repository from the backups. So, we have setup a temporary SVN server on a certain workstation from the most recent version that we had. The net result is:
- We have a few months of work on the temporary SVN server (the revisions there start from 1, of course)
- There is a new VCS server machine with the pre-crash SVN repository restored there, but no one uses it yet, because someone has to merge the temporary repository there somehow and no one has the time.
- In addition, we want to migrate to git, because SVN is just too much pain to work with - merges are killing us.
Can anyone advice on the best process to end up with a git repository, which would contain the old SVN repository merged with the temporary one?
BTW, the new VCS server is a linux machine.
Thanks a lot in advance.
