Efficient enough Version Control System has always been a challenge based on your requirements of local, centralized or distributed version controlling. Git a distributed version controlling system helps us to achieve same painlessly and is already out for quite some time now with proven track record. In this post we will cover the steps to migrate from your existing version control system like SVN to Git.

Why Git

Some of the features of Git which makes it to standout,

  • Fixed the pitfalls and learning from SVN
  • Dramatic increase in operation speed (diff, merge, view history etc.)
  • Easy, Cheap and efficient branch operations
  • Full history tree available offline
  • Distributed, peer-to-peer model
  • Git’s repositories are much smaller than Subversions
  • Git branches carry their entire history
  • Git provides better auditing of branch and merge events
  • Git’s repository file formats are simple, so repair is easy and corruption is rare.
  • Backing up Subversion repositories centrally is potentially simpler – since you can choose to distributed folders within a repo in git
  • Git repository clones act as full repository backups
  • Walking through versions is simpler in Subversion because it uses sequential revision numbers (1,2,3,..); Git uses unpredictable SHA-1 hashes. Walking backwards in Git is easy using the “^” syntax, but there is no easy way to walk forward.
