There are scenarios where the default branch-tag-layout may not be sufficient. Following procedure allows you to customize the layout:

smartgit.debugMenu=true
  • Restart SmartGit.
  • Select Repository|Clone, enter the URL, press Next, then check Just initialize clone (expert mode) and complete the wizard.

SmartGit will initialize the repository without starting cloning. Don't press Pull once finished, but exit SmartGit (Repository|Exit).

  • Edit path/to/repository/.git/svn/.svngit/svngitkit.config to configure your custom layout by defining the additional-branches key.
  • Start SmartGit, reopen your project and invoke Pull.

Example: trunk has been copied from different project

To fetch an old trunk from a different project, a configuration could look like as follows (there must be no line break for the whole additional-branches key).

[svn-git-remote "svn"]
url = http://servername/svn/MyRepository
fetch = ProjectB/trunk:refs/remotes/svn/trunk
branches = ProjectB/branches/*:refs/remotes/svn/branches/*
tags = ProjectB/tags/*:refs/remotes/svn/tags/*
additional-branches =
"ProjectA/trunk:refs/remotes/svn-old/trunk;ProjectA/branches/*:refs/remotes/svn-old/branches/*;ProjectA/tags/*:refs/remotes/svn-old/tags/*"
