Hi. I have to import from SVN to Git some small part (several subfolders) of huge monorepository with long history.
History of development was - first year these folders are being developed in
trunk then dedicated branch was created, and development was being continued to there for next 2 years till now.
I have no problems to import branch separately, using directory layout. But when I trying to configure import
my_branch then SubGit freezes trying to get even 1st revision since specified start point in its config.
I waited for several hours without any success. Then I ran Fiddler (proxy server with ability to view packets), and sent SVN traffic via there. And then I discovered, that SubGit wants to obtain “update report” for whole huge repository (without any exclude folders preferences), and it seems that it is quite impossible to get - response contains binary data and lot of XML information per each file, and this simple response can have size of tens of gigabytes. (I was not able to ever wait for its finish to determine whole size, so there is an intermediate results).
Is there any possibilities to get SVN update report for specific folders, or get it part by part, to get rid of this problem?
