Hello, we have a project currently configured like this:
url = http://devsvn:8080/svn/Repo/Trunk trunk = :refs/heads/master
We would like to sync another branch, so would need this config:
url = http://devsvn:8080/svn/Repo trunk = Trunk:refs/heads/master branches = Branch1:refs/heads/branch1
When I run the
install command for the above (v3.3.9) I get this error:
error: The following new mappings have been removed from [svn] section: error: :refs/heads/master error: Only branches that are not yet present in Subversion history could be removed. error: Revert these deletions and run 'install' command, or force rebuild with '--rebuild' option.
I also tried with the original url and trunk and adding a relative path to the branch starting with
../ but it didn’t like this either:
error: There is one layout option with empty SVN part: error: error: :refs/heads/master error: error: In this case only trunk option is allowed, please remove layout options with non-empty SVN part: error: error: ../Branch1:refs/heads/branch
Is the only way for me to add this branch to use the above config and run with
rebuild? What happens to my existing master branch if I do this, does it get “trashed” (i.e. new commit SHAs and users have to re-clone)? What happens to existing merge requests if this is synced with a Gitlab project?
