Twig’s Tech Tips

This was a complicated one, and I ran into a few problems trying to move DCX over from GoogleCode to Github. Usernames on Google Code emails. When you bring them over, your commit text messages are full of potentially 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’re trying to get this done on Windows, forget it. Save yourself the trouble and grab Linuxmint, Ubuntu, or whichever you like and run it in Virtualbox flavor. It won’t set you back anything and takes significantly less than an hour to download and install. The time spent setting up Linux will be really worth it compared to trying to complete 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 utilize. This is where all of your magic will happen. We’ll need to install a few things. Enter your security password when prompted. I don’t think I have to describe why subversion and git are necessary. SVN data into a format it can understand.

It also sorts arranges the SVN branches into git branches. The tool tip is quite useful for looking at your changes as they stand after tugging the repository into your 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 communications, sorts, gets rid of duplicates and saves them to a document called “authors.txt”. Keep carefully the left column as is, but feel free to change the right column. The name and email on the right will be utilized in the git history. Once all the changes are finished, save, and close. Because Google doesn’t allow shell usage of the SVN repository, you can’t simply dump and duplicate 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 might have a while. The “trunk” is now called “master” branch in git. This was your stable route. Type “tig” to see what’s happening, and if the usernames were migrated correctly. Choose the commit (arrow keys) and open the commit details with the Enter button.

If you’re happy with how it is, time to force it into GitHub! If you run into mistakes, please follow the given information on both of these pages to help troubleshoot your woes. Once it’s up and running, you can link GitHub to your neighborhood git repository. To surmise what just happened.

We added a “remote” location directing to your GitHub project and called it “origin” as this is your brand-new home. You fetch the existing information regarding it and then combine in the origins get good at branch into your get better at branch, melding the gits repository with the GitHub repository. When that’s done, we force all our existing data files from gits into the bare repository at source (GitHub).

This again should take the 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 your brain bending 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 good at” and revive any files from “dcxutf”, along with any apparent changes to documents mutual to both branches.

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