It just locked up all of my shell extensions, from new file to 7zip... It actively refused to uninstall, throwing away msi errors on missing installer. Had to hunt it down with orcas and clean up registry manually, then reinstall every app used in shell extensions. Painful. Do not want to try it again unless really sure it would be working. I`m using svn for other projects and will not uninstall it just to make tortoisegit work, if that would be the issue.
Yes, such problem was solved not so a short time ago. Specially for u and other bad vista users, i will install vista enterprise sp1 on vmware, just say me - x86 or x64 version?

Also, your fanatical "i am right and you must be wrong" approach is not helping at all. What more, your attitude in this matter is actively deterring people from supporting GIT as main repo. I`d suggest having a few deep breaths and reconsideration.
I give 2 links, that explain my position. In opposition - i don't see nothing, else than we are currently using svn and don't want try anything else and Alex Ionescu using Mac, so he don't like how to git support Mac ( http://code.google.com/p/git-osx-instal ... list?can=3 ).
All this is bullshit. I need really weighty arguments against git!

PS Fireball wanted to give me access to new cmake branch, but all brunches using svn - that's why this poll and using git so important for me.

Why not to create just cmake git branch?

That's not problem.. problem in trunk - nobody can't commit in trunk via git.

Your position has been explained and while we sympathize with your problem, we are not about to inconvenience our access to the repository for your sake. You've stated why YOU want to switch over to git, but the rest of the developers do not share those reasons. As such, you have not convinced us why something as drastic as switching the primary repository is necessary or desirable. It may solve problems for you, but it'll only cause more problems for us. And while we're willing to help you fix the problems you seem to be facing, that willingness does not extend to making things harder for the rest of us for your sake.

That's what I'm talking of — the ability to commit to the trunk without necessity to use SVN…

Well... It is a mirror. In general, mirrors are read only, with a few rare exceptions to that. It's a precaution, and a good one at that. The possibility of poisoning a repository is far less when mirrors are read only.

What about git-svn then? Alexey, have you tried it?

The Caveats are pretty severe with git-svn, I don't know if it would be a good idea to enable using it...

Yes, that's slow workaround, which don't slove the problem.

The most safe solution would be a script on the server, which should take patches from a dedicated mailbox, apply them to the sources, and commit changes. Then everyone can use whatever they want locally; even write patches by hand. :)

Or some kind of cross-scripting, allowing to commit to git as well as svn repo and synchronizing one over another. I wonder, apart from just being possible to be done, how would this impact stat gathering?

But, you aren't a dev so what do you care?
You're looking for a problem that doesn't exist

As I understand, he want to work in a branch and merge changes back into the trunk from time to time, in the manner of Cameron and aicom-network-fixes, without having to use SVN.

Yes, u are right. And this problem will never arise.

Can somebody answer, what reason was to move all source from cvs to svn?

Then he will have to use SVN like everyone else.
We aren't about to change one of the best source control tools to something far insuperior just to please one person.
