Subject Re: Migrate SVN -> Git
Date Mon, 27 May 2019 21:19:39 GMT
I've moved this bit from "Gradle" thread to keep things separated.

As I said, SVN revisions are present in Git commit messages.
Why do you think "there is no way to map"?

sebb>the history
sebb> of deletions is lost

The history is NOT lost. The deleted files are deleted in every git commit.
It happens as if they were never added.

Old history (unmodified) can still be available via SVN (with all the files
preset), and/or via "old git mirror".

On contrary. What I suggest IS the standard process.

Please check recent migration of Apache Tomcat project:

It is exactly as I suggest: infra disables svn->git sync, they make gitbox
repository writable, then we agree to stop committing while migration is
performed, then we review, then we continue.
