Is it possible to pass the SVN password on the command-line or in a text file? I would like to run git-svn via a script?

I know that the username can be passed on the command-line, but is it possible to pass the password as well or have it stored in another location that git-svn can use?

Git-svn can use the credentials defined in the ~/.subversion/servers file.

I will give that another go-round. – Walter White Nov 28 '11 at 21:07

You can use:

echo $password | git svn --username $username ...
