How can I track multiple svn branches in git

There are so many ways to skin a cat, can anyone improve on this?

-------------Problems Reply------------

That's a great article, but what really helped me was to understand the config for git svn.

Assuming your SVN is setup like:


your .git/config looks like this:

[svn-remote "svn"]
url = $SVN_ROOT
fetch = project/trunk:refs/remotes/git-svn
branches = project/branches/*:refs/remotes/*
tags = project/tags/*:refs/remotes/tags/*

then a git branch -r will list all the remote branches. The "project/branches/*" says that anything on SVN in the branches dir is mapped to a remote branch.

git checkout $branch will check it out, but what you really want to do is git checkout -b my_feature $branch and work your local branch (rooted at the remote branch), and then merge in when you are done.

a neat article which helped me ever so much hope it is useful.
