git svn clone & merge
I have a GIT clone of an SVN repository. Based on the CAVEATS section of the git-svn documentation, it appears I cannot clone this git repository again:
For the sake of simplicity and interoperating with Subversion, it is recommended that all git svn users clone, fetch and dcommit directly from the SVN server, and avoid all git clone/pull/merge/push operations between git repositories and branches.
I was hoping I could share this GIT repository to other users, who can in turn dcommit directly to svn. This seems like a big restriction, as every other user needs to reclone the SVN repository or use
rsync as suggested on the same page.
So first question is -- am I understanding this correctly?
Secondly, can someone give an example of what this paragraph means? I am completely lost:
You must therefore ensure that the most recent commit of the branch you want to dcommit to is the first parent of the merge. Chaos will ensue otherwise, especially if the first parent is an older commit on the same SVN branch.
