Git : Use Git-SVN2023/07/25

For the case Subversion repositories are used on Server Side, it's possible to use them from Git working repositories with Git-SVN.
[1] Install Git-SVN on Client Side.
apt -y install git-svn
[2] On this example, it is based on that [svnserve] is running on Subversion Server Host. (not mandatory requirements)
Also Access to [/var/svn/repos/project] repository on Subversion Server [].
mkdir work

cd work
# clone with [git svn ***] from SVN repository

git svn clone --username debian svn://

hint: Using 'master' as the name for the initial branch. This default branch name
hint: is subject to change. To configure the initial branch name to use in all
hint: of your new repositories, which will suppress this warning, call:
hint:   git config --global init.defaultBranch <name>
hint: Names commonly chosen instead of 'master' are 'main', 'trunk' and
hint: 'development'. The just-created branch can be renamed via this command:
hint:   git branch -m <name>
