Use Case Maker is housed in an old CVS repository. The first thing that I want to do is to convert that into a more modern source control system, such as subversion or git. Because of my own personal preferences, I am going to choose git as the repository of choice. This will also enable me to host the repository on GitHub for my readers to browse.
I want to retain the existing history, so simply downloading the source and pushing it into a new repository is not an option. I'm going to have to jump though some hoops to get the job done.
First, I need to download some tools. I'm not going to go through the process of installing them here, but I'll provide the links I used:
> mkdir use-case-maker-cvs > \path\to\cwRsync\bin\rsync -av rsync://use-case-maker.cvs.sourceforge.net/cvsroot/use-case-maker/* use-case-maker-cvs
Next, execute cvs2git:
> \Python27\python.exe cvs2svn\cvs2git --blobfile=git.blob --dumpfile=git.dump --username=sczetty use-case-maker-cvs
Almost there! Now open up a msysgit shell to create the git repository:
> mkdir use-case-maker > cd use-case-maker > git init > git fast-import --export-marks=../git-marks.dat < ../git.blob > git fast-import --import-marks=../git-marks.dat < ../git.dump
And we're done! I have pushed a copy of this repository to https://github.com/stephen-czetty/UseCaseMaker
