I would like to vote for issue 1328 -- in-place import feature request

From: jbeall <jbeall.nabble_at_heraldic.us>

I see this was requested back in the pre-1.0 days, but it doesn't appear to
have gotten any interest since then... has the idea been abandoned? I would
find it extremely useful. At my workplace we have *tons* of code that is
not in a version control system of any kind, and it would be extremely
useful to be able to do in-place imports. I can't imagine we're that
unique--I've had too many conversations with devs at other shops that are in
a similar situation.

Import-Rename-Checkout works, but it would be a lot nicer to import things
in place.

Here's the issue link, and some of the details:


* Summary: Import should have an option to create WC (was "cannot checkout
over previously imported tree")

Description: Opened: Fri May 23 21:30:00 -0700 2003 Sort by: Oldest

This is useful when you want to create a project in an IDE and them
import it. The .svn dir is needed so a fresh checkout or even a way to
do an import that writes back the .svn dirs would be great.

I'm not sure whether even *CVS* allows you to do a 'checkout' which
overwrites an unversioned tree. The idea makes my skin crawl.
Assigning to post-1.0, enhancement. Let the debate over this happen

Copy of text sent to the mailing list:

"Just a $0.02 on this subject - my ideal 'import' would actually just be a
svn add which did not
require a root wc. it would schedule the whole imported tree for addition,
and perhaps would scan
for things such as mime-type and line endings and set those properties.
However, it wouldn't
affect the repository until I did a commit. This would allow me to have much
stronger control over
my imports, and also would leave me after import with a valid working copy."

Fix summary.

Someone got carried away with platform and OS again. This applies to All.
