Branching

Checking out a new branch

To work on a new SVN branch, update the local repository with git-svn fetch to see the new branch.

  $ git svn fetch
  $ git branch -r
  $ git checkout -b local_branch svn_branch

Creating a new branch

Versions of git prior to version 1.6.1 do not allow you to create an SVN branch from within Git. Thereafter use git-svn branch

Deleting a stale branch

Use SVN to delete the branch

Use git to remove the stale branch

  $ git branch -D -r <branchname>
