[Bioc-devel] Catching SVN up to Github

It seems like you renamed your package after it was submitted based on the current version in svn and the current ERROR occurring on the build report.

Could you check your git config -l   and see if the svn-remote* in the config file are updated to reflect the naming change?

Subject: [Bioc-devel] Catching SVN up to Github

Hi all,

Since our package, "trena", was accepted, we've made some pretty extensive
changes to the package on Github. Our version has so far jumped from
0.99.10 to 0.99.135. These changes are all contained on a forked version of
the Bioconductor mirror, as specified (https://www.bioconductor.org/
developers/how-to/git-mirrors/). We haven't yet put these changes onto SVN.

My question is regarding how to get the Github repo and the SVN on the same
page. I've followed the procedure outlined on the linked page and also
tried the cherry picking procedure, but any `git svn` command
(info/rebase/dcommit) run on the devel branch returns me the same message:

Unable to determine upstream SVN information from HEAD history.

I've also tried a `git svn log`, which returns: fatal: your current branch
appears to be broken

Any ideas what's going on here? I'm a self-admitted novice when it comes to
