Thanks for your quick reply! Let me go through your check-list...

I do get the problem with a clean clone, and I don't see any difference between the structure of the .git/svn/* of the problematic repo and of the working test-repo. The problem can be reproduced as simple as this: $ git svn init svn://svn.xxx.xxx/xxx/trunk $ git svn fetch -r BASE:10 $ git branch -a * master remotes/git-svn $ git svn info Unable to determine upstream SVN information from working tree history $ git log each commit shows line like: "a git-svn-id: svn://svn.xxx.xxx/xxx/trunk@1-10 xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx" These 10 revisions only consist of file insertions and deletions in the trunk. >> To test if this was a general problem, I just tried to git-svn clone a >> repo on some public svn server which was also using the svn protocol.

I see the problem with both git version 126.96.36.199.1299.gee46c (msysgit) and git version 188.8.131.52.412.gf581d (Ubuntu). The latter contains your fix for that other problem I encountered :) >Are there any weird characters in the URL? No. The only thing 'different' about this svn server is that it uses authentication (i.e. asks for name+password). But I suppose that when the git-svn fetch goes well, then this is not the problem? Do the git-svn info and git-svn rebase even need to access the svn server? >Off the top of my head I can't think of anything else; I assume >you're not allowed to share access to the repo (or to the clone) you're >having problems with? Right, at least it's something we should talk about off-list. Is there any way of asking git-svn *why* it is "unable to determine upstream SVN information from working tree history" ?
