Git+SVN #7: Leaving SVN behind

This post is part of a series on Git and Subversion. To see all the related posts, screencasts and other resources, please click here.

This is my last Git+SVN screencast for the time being. Appropriately, it's about the steps we can take when leaving Subversion behind forever, allowing us to fully make use of Git.

We are yet to do this at our place. We will still maintain the Git+SVN bridge until the majority of the developers have been persuaded into using Git as an "SVN client". And in case Mercurial starts to show off some more impressive SVN-integration, we might drop Git in favor of that.

Credit to Thomas Rast who helped me out on the #git IRC channel some time ago. This article of his covers the technicalities of the last screencasts much better than I could explain in the video.

All videos can be viewed on this YouTube playlist, and all content is linked together on my Git+SVN page on Thanks for watching!
