Using Subversion effectively with Git

How to use git-svn as a drop-in Subversion client (GIT-WS2)


Git is a powerful distributed version control system which is becoming increasingly popular among developers. The distributed nature of Git makes it hard to deploy in environments that require centralised version control. The git-svn command line tool allows Git to be used as a Subversion client, giving developers access to features that are unique to Git (such as offline commits and less network overhead), while all assets are still stored in a central Subversion repository.
