I am building a new internal server for my company. It started with a very cobbled together svn and then we added git as that was requested. Going forward, I prefer to use only Git.
Our Git Repo:
/opt/git is 8 GB in size and has 42 folders inside of the git parent Structure of a random project where [d] indicates directory: branches [d], config, description, HEAD, hooks [d], info [d], objects [d], refs [d] Branches is empty Config has text Description has text HEAD has text Hooks has the filly executable sh scripts: applypatch-msg.sample, commit-msg.sample, post-update.sample, pre-applypatch.sample, pre-commit.sample, prepare-commit-msg.sample, pre-rebase.sample, update.sample Info has a single file called exclude which is a text file Objects has 200 hexidecimal folders Refs has two directories called heads and tags
Can I just tar up /opt/git and untar it at the destination or are there further steps needed?
Our Subversion Repo:
/home/repos/svn is 11 GB in size and has 63 folders inside of the svn parent Structure of a random project where [d] indicates directory: conf [d], db [d], format, hooks [d], locks [d], README.txt Inside of conf has : authz, passwd, and svnserve.conf Inside of db has : current, format, fsfs.conf, fs-type, min-unpacked-rev, rep-cache.db, revprops, revs, transactions, txn-current, txn-current-lock, txn-protorevs, uuid, and write-lock Inside of hooks has : post-commit.tmpl, post-lock.tmpl, post-revprop-change.tmpl, post-unlock.tmpl, pre-commit.tmpl, pre-lock.tmpl, pre-revprop-change.tmpl, pre-unlock.tmpl, start-commit.tmpl Inside of locks has : db.lock and db-logs.lock The format file has a single integer in it
So because how the svn was cobbled together, when I migrate to a new RHEL server, I like to convert it to git and also properly, maybe even stripping, and redoing the permissions, because right now every project has a separate authz, passwd, svnserve.conf; though the majority has the same three engineers.
Obviously it is a mess. Can I just tar up /home/repos/svn ensuring permissions are kept (?) and then untar on the destination since it isn't production yet and work on either fixing how our svn works, or converting it to a git repo, which I think is more ideal so there is only one repository for the team.
I am unfamiliar with Git and Svn so if I stated obviously structures, I apologise.
