In the process of converting a Subversion repository to git, you might encounter the following error while converting svn:ignore settings to .gitignore:

config --get svn-remote.svn.fetch :refs/remotes/git-svn$: command returned error: 1

How do I resolve this error?


To resolve this error, specify the GIT_SVN_ID refname you want to fetch information from. Like:

git svn show-ignore -i trunk > .gitignore
  • 1
    Try this git svn show-ignore -i origin/trunk > .gitignore if above not works. – Abdurrahman I. Mar 19 at 7:03
