While Subversion has quickly become a standard tool for maintaining open source projects, another up-and-coming standard is Git. The two fulfill very different needs, with svn being useful when you want a canonical repository with a standard set of hooks for project management, while git is more suited to projects with either subcomponents that may be developed in parallel or distributed teams with no central backing entity.
Two huge benefits of git, however, are it's dirt simple branching capabilities, and the ability to work entirely offline. So, what happens when you want these features, but your project uses Subversion? Why, use the two together, of course!
In this session, we'll look at how to use git+svn, a standard tool chain for cloning subversion repositories to a local git repository, including how to pull from and push changes to your canonical svn repository, as well as create local experimental branches.
