I am trying to convert some old svn repros to git using svn2git under windows. I execute the following command from my git bash
svn2git https://repo.example.com/repos/my_repro --username user --notags --authors ~/authors.txt --verbose
git svn init
I ended up using
git svn clone. After all I didn't need any special treatment for my very simple repository so that it did the trick. I had totally forgot about this possibility in the first place.
