Subject Cannot git svn clone...
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2011 18:38:53 GMT
Hello,

For a project of mine, I need dynamic DDL capabilities at run time.
After some Google searches, I found two projects: LiquiBase and
DDLUtils.

LiquiBase has close to no tutorial at all on how to program it (they
do have Javadoc, though), DDLUtils has. But it's an old version (1.0).
The Maven artifacts don't have source and Javadocs available, so I
decided to git svn clone instead.

First problem: ddlutils is a subdirectory of the ASF repo, which has
more than one _million_ revisions.

Second problem: git svn clone seems to have no way around that. It
wants to scan the whole history...

Third problem: ... but it fails doing so because of a permission problem:

----
fg@erwin ~/src $ git svn clone -s http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/db/ddlutils/

I am ready to take the 1M+ tolls of revision as I'm really no fan of
SVN at all and am ready to support the costs of git svn fetch at
regular intervals. But I don't know what to do with this error... Can
anybody help?
