Using Git for WordPress plugin development.

I haven't used Subversion in years, and while I have done a lot of WordPress plugins over the year for work, they were all private and we never shared them on the registry.

I prefer to use git. I knew it had a svn sub-command however I've never used it. I spent the better part of a day trying to figure out how to push to WordPress's Subversion from git.

I tried to follow several guides but I kept getting Unable to determine upstream SVN information from working tree history, I spent hours googling it, eventually I came to the conclusion I have to use a different branch.

I thought I'd share this. might save someone few hours of frustration.

Notes :

  • I'm not sure how this would work if multiple people are pushing to svn, I'd use git and only one person pushes to svn.
