Description R Stephan 2012-05-22 14:19:30 UTC
The ebuild is version 1.0.5 but github/nirvdrum/svn2git is at 2.2.1 and recommended by github themselves, so likely stable, too.

Hello R Stephan,

there are at least two distinct projects by the name "svn2git":

     - Wrapper around git-svn
     - Written in Ruby

     - Not a wrapper to git-svn
     - Written in C++ by KDE people
     - Also called "svn-all-fast-export", e.g. in Debian
     - Different to git-svn in major aspects

I am therefore closing as "CANTFIX" for now, the way that seems to fit best to me.

If you need that other svn2git in Gentoo, someone will have to find a new name to circumvent the collision in Gentoo.
