git svn

Hi Experts,

When we do a "git svn clone" command, is there a way to pull a previous revision number?  

Also, more importantly, when working with git locally, with a central svn server for collaboration, when I do the clone call, should I be cloning to the same folder as my base svn working folder?  i.e., if my working folder for svn is c:\dev, should I do the following command to setup git in the same folder?  (or will it interfere or mess up svn?)

git-svn clone http://192.168.1.100:443/svn/dev/ c:\dev

Thank you!
Mike

When you clone an SVN repo you clone all of the history too so all you need to do is clone it and then use git-reset to go to the revision you're interested in. The git reset command is the equivalent to svn revert.

git reset --hard <rev>

You can clone to any directory you like. A git repo is completely self-contained.
