Using bzr to create an archive from svn

Asked by Rob on 2007-06-15


We're considering using Bazaar where I work because of the benefit of "archiving" a repository when we're done with a project -- a way to zip up the files and all change history in case we need it later and store the zip file as part of our backups. I think bzr will work great in this capacity and archives better than subversion, IMO. Also, I think bzr will be able to unzip the archive, make whatever changes we needed, check those back in, and zip it up for archival again.

To the question:
As we've worked on many projects over the years, our subversion repository is huge. We'd like a way to pull all files and history out of subversion to archive each project. I tried using bzr-svn to do this but wasn't able to. Is there a way to do this? If so, could someone please explain?

You may need to discuss your configuration and needs in greater detail on IRC: #bzr on freenode, ask for jelmer who is the bzr-svn author or just fire your questions, many others may help.

Can you help with this problem?
