When trying to convert a SVN repository that contained all our projects, I couldn’t find a good solution on the internet on one page.

The most usefull pages were:




I combined them together and described the steps below that will get the job done.

sudo adduser git
nano /etc/group
sudo mkdir /usr/local/git_root
sudo chown git.git /usr/local/git_root
sudo chmod 2770 /usr/local/git_root

Create authors.txt file for user mapping:

root = Root <root@example.local>
usera = My name <myname@example.local>

To get a listing of all users in the repository:

svn log file:///development/svn_projects | grep -E
